LCB Officials Raid KALO Grove 

by Melissa Horst 

At 11:15 p.m. Saturday, 
Jan. 28, Lebanon City Police 
and two agents from the Pen- 
nsylvania Liquor Control 
Board raided Kalo's first 
grove of the semester. 

By midnight, 18 students 
were cited for underage 
drinking and Kalo was cited 
for unknown reasons. 

The raid was a complete 
surprise, according to Frank 
"Sparky" Rafferty, president 
of Kalo. "We never had any 
trouble in the past," he said. 

Rafferty described what 
happened, saying, "We were 
standing at the door and a 
man walked up and asked, 
'Who's in charge?' I looked 
down and saw his walkie- 

talkie and thought, 'Oh no.' 
He said, 'I want the lights on 
and the music off. We're 
proofing everyone under 21.' 
Then the police sealed off the 
doors and everyone had to 
breathe in an LCB agent's face 
before they could leave. If the 
agent smelled alcohol he sent 
them upstairs." 

One student who was there 
described the scene as "Un- 
believable. Everybody was 
smoking every cigarette they 
could get their hands on," she 

Despite the cigarettes, some 
people were cited. 

One person who wants to 
remain anonymous, talked 
about the incident. 

"When I got to the door the 

guy said, 'Breathe on me,' and 
when I did he said 'Upstairs!' 
So I went upstairs. There were 
a lot of people up there stan- 
ding in line. When I got to the 
table, the guy read me my 
rights and asked me how much 
I had to drink. I said, 'Two 
beers.' Then he asked me my 
name, age, home and if I had 
any ID. He asked me if I had 
been to groves before and if I 
had ever been asked for ID. 
Then he asked me to sign a 
paper. I did, but I didn't know 
what I was signing. On Friday, 
Feb. 3, I got a $95 fine." In 
Pennsylvania, a fine for un- 
derage drinking ranges from 
$1 to $300, depending on the 
judgement of the district court 

"I feel bad for the people 
who got the citations," Sparky 
said. "We got a fine too." 

"Really," Sparky con- 
tinued, "the only people they 
nailed were the people who 
said that they were drinking. 
The honest people were the 
only ones who got in trouble." 

Although everyone who was 
there and everyone who knows 
someone who was there has 
their own version of what hap- 
pened, no one knows why. 

"I personally feel," Raffer- 
ty said, "that it was someone 
within the school system, and I 
wish they would tell us why 
they did it. I mean, since two 
of the LCB agents got into the 

grove before the raid with 
LVC Continuing Education 
ID's, it must have come from 
inside the administration." 
Anyone who attends a grove is 
required to show identification 
to be allowed in the building, 
according to the lease held by 
Jack L. Shirk, operator of The 
Catering Place. 

Dean Marquette says he is 
as confused as Kalo as to who 
instigated the raid. 

Referring to the college, 
Marquette said, "I haven't 
heard anyone — any authori- 
ties — express any disapproval 
of any behavior by Kalo." 

According to a report in The 

see KALO Grove, p. 

New Quad Editor Named 

Senior Amy Hostetler has 
been named Managing Editor 
of The Quad for the 1983-84 
Spring Semester. A scientific 
communications major, 
Hostetler has previously 
served as News Editor, 
Associate Editor and Assistant 
Copy Editor. 

"I hope to build a good fea- 
tures department and increase 
the number of letters to the 
editor," Hostetler said, 
adding "Opinions are 
important, and the campus 
should realize The Quad 
represents the opinion of the 
many, not just the few." She 
said that any student, faculty 
or staff member may con- 
tribute to The Quad. 

Last semester's Managing 
Editor, David Frye, a physics 
major, will serve as Layout 
Editor for the paper. "David 
has built a good Opinion/Edi- 

torial section of the pape that I 
want to continue," Hostetler 
said. "He's the one respon- 
sible for expanding The 
Quad's coverage of opinions, 
reviews and editorials," she 

Peter Johansson, formerly 
the Columnist, will assume 
duties as the Features Editor 
and continue to write his 
column, The Right Stuff. 
Hostetler said, "His columns 
have injected a sense of humor 
that The Quad needed. His 
talents will help strengthen the 
features department." She 
added that she hopes to have 
more features on campus 
community members. 

Tracy Wenger, a sophomore 
English and elementary 
education major, will continue 
as Sports Editor. Hostetler 
said of Wenger, "Tracy is 
responsible for the increase in 

sports coverage. She's very 
dependable; I know I can 
depend on her to cover LVC 
sporting events." 

Since December, five new 
members have joined the 
Quad staff. Hostetler said, 
"Our staff is inexperienced, 
but the new reporters have the 
potential to develop into solid, 
strong writers." 

Quad advisor Dr. Arthur 
Ford commended Frye on his 
job as editor. "Dave put in 
two semesters of solid work," 
Ford said, adding, "We 
always knew the copy would 
be there and knew it would be 
quality work." 

Ford said that he is pleased 
that Hostetler has assumed the 
editorship. "Amy put in three 
good years with the newspaper 
and she deserves the chance to 
put her stamp on The Quad," 
he said.

RIGHTsTUFF... Follow the Bouncing Ball 

by Peter Johansson 

Note: It's cleaning time, so bear with me. Lots of 
little ideas are running around in my head that 
won't go away until I write them down. It's like 
having a song bouncing around your brain that 
won't leave until you sing it as loudly as possible (I 
once had That's the Way I Like It stuck in my head 
for twelve hours. Why is it always the worst 
songs?). So here we go with some little snippets of 
Useful Items That Could Be Sold at the 

•Coffee, No-Doze, Dexedrine, Raw Caffeine, etc. 
•Roach Motels 

•Back Scratchers (with the school emblem on the 

•Mooseheads (You'll need about seventy-five 
pounds of plasti-tac to keep one of these up.) 
•Student Council Movie Ticket Books (This is 
actually a Legitimately Serious Idea. So were the 
Oreos, but I'm not pressing my luck.) 
•Alarm Clocks 

•Gorilla costumes (I've always wanted one of these. 
Great for Groves.)

Psychological Profiles of the Presidential 

Jesse Jackson: Messiah complex. Thinks he's 
going to lead the country to Nirvana. Plans to hold 
press conferences on Mount Olympus. 

Walter Mondale: Big Time Inferiority Complex. 
More insecure than anyone else running. Has got to 
crack soon. Don't let this man become president. 

John Glenn: Nearly as paranoid as Mondale. 
Hides it better, though. Plans to announce Don 
King as his VP so people will start talking about 
someone else for a while. 

Alan Cranston: Don't let his gentle nature fool 
you. This man is a walking time bomb. 

Reuben Askew: Reuben Askew has no 
psychological profile. 

Gary Hart: Stable. Too stable, if you know what 
I mean. This man has something to hide. 

Fritz Hollings: Another LBJ. Don't stand in an 
elevator with this man. 

George McGovern: The only sane candidate. 
Vote for him. 

Harold Stassen: Senile at birth. 

Larry Flint: Dangerously unbalanced. Do not let 
this man kiss your baby. 

Ronald Reagan: Altered perception of reality. 
Still thinks there are 48 states. Nancy is the 
dangerous half of the Reagans. 

How to Stay Awake in Class: 

1) Choose a particular idiom of your professor. 
Count how many times he says a particular word or 
phrase. (In high school, I had a calculus teacher 
that said, "OK" 3.5 times per minute. I have the 
graphs if you don't believe me.) This is usually 
fairly interesting, and it looks like you're taking 

2) Stick yourself with a pin. 

3) Stick the guy in front of you with a pin. 

4) Eat a nice snack in class. My favorite is clams 
casino, a baked potato, and a slice of angel food 
cake. Brush your teeth afterwards. 

5) Sing. 

6) Ask lots of questions. 

7) Try to balance something on your nose. 

8) Hyperventilate (not recommended for biology 
or Family Planning & Marriage classes.). 

EDITORIAL... Building Castles and Identities 

by Amy Hosteller 

If you have built castles in the air, your work need 
not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put 
the foundations under them. — Thoreau, Walden 

With the selection of Dr. Arthur L. Peterson as 
LVC's next president, the presidential search com- 
mittee died quietly, and a "strategic planning com- 
mittee" has sprung up in its place. This long-term 
planning commission intends to evaluate and set 
goals for all of five years (one generation ot studen- 
ts) and "look forward" to 1991, LVC's 125th an- 

According to Peterson, to become stronger, LVC 
"must give up the illusion of self-sufficiency, in- 
crease the satisfaction of faculty and staff, and 
sustain the centrality of teaching." 

All of these are worthwhile objectives, and 
hopefully Peterson will lead the college through 
realistic steps to obtain them. When Peterson 
assumes office, however, he will inherit more than 
100 years of dreams and ideals, as well as the now- 
empty phrase, "a four-year, church-related, liberal 
arts college." In the past 20 years, this phrase has 

deteriorated into a meaningless Platonic ideal at 
Lebanon Valley College. 

LVC is now at a crossroads. There are many 
possible directions that Peterson can take as 
president. But, before the college passes "Go" and 
proceeds down the path, someone should re- 
establish LVC's identity. 

Are we church-related? Will the new General 
Education requirements accomplish their task of 
fully educating a student? Can we be a liberal arts 
college and offer such highly specialized majors as 
nuclear medical technology? (10 points per 
question, choose two of the three, you have 50 
minutes to answer. Begin.) 

What LVC needs so desperately is a blend of 
"castles in the air" idealism and concrete pragma- 
tism. The committee must realistically consider the 
feasibility of its goals, but keep sight of the castles. 
It's difficult, and very tempting to adopt a no- 

nonsense, hard-nosed attitude toward the college as 
a whole. 

Business methods applied to a college can work, 
kept in their place, but Megatrends (Peterson's cat- 
ch-all reference) and employee relations tactics can- 
not be "worked" directly on students and faculty 
members. Students aren't employees and professors 
hate, understandably, condescension. Faculty, 
students, staff and administrators have different 
special interests, but share one overriding concern, 
that of keeping LVC alive and meaningful. 

Once the college has a clear understanding of its 
identity, the committee will be in a better position 
to design the Five- Year-Plan, a more aggressive 
recruitment and retention plan, decide what 
facilities are needed/renovated, and what programs 
to include/expand/change/drop. 

Perhaps Peterson will provide the catalyst. 
Perhaps an outsider can cure us. The next few mon- 
ths will tell.

Dear Editor, 

Whenever questions arise 
about the alcohol policy, 
LVC's administrators and 
trustees faithfully invoke our 
school's affiliation with the 
United Methodist Church. 
When they do so, however, it 
produces the image in my 
"mind's eye" of someone un- 
veiling an old, dust-covered 
family heirloom, only to pack 
it away again once it has 
been glimpsed. I do not 
question the alcohol policy; 
sound, logically consistent 
reasons support it. Instead, I 
question our church af- 

We say we are affiliated 
with the United Methodist 


We say it loudly when we 
are defending the alcohol 
policy; when we are enticing 
prospective church-minded 
students and their church- 
minded parents to sign-up 
here, to send their money here; 
and especially so when we are 
asking the community for 
money to continue our 
operations, to expand, to im- 

We say it softly when we are 
defending the new guest 
policy; very softly indeed 
when we are enticing non- 
church-minded students and 
their non-church-minded 
parents to sign-up here, to 
send their money here; and 

most softly of all on Sunday 
and Tuesday mornings. 

What is at the heart of this 
dichotomy? Is it that we lack 
the courage of our convic- 
tions? Or is it that we lack the 
convictions themselves? 

I place a challange before all 
of you, the students, faculty, 
administrators, and trustees, 
and especially before Chaplain 
Smith, Mr. Rutherford, and 
Dr. Peterson. I challenge you 
to meet and discuss the topic 
"LVC and Our Affiliation to 
the United Methodist Chur- 
ch," to determine the new 
nature of that relationship and 
to boldly and fully implement 
whatever decision we reach.

EDITORIAL... A Season for Presidents 

by David Frye 

This is the season for presidents. In the passing of 
little more than two months, three men will have 
occupied the paneled office in the Administration 
Building. Also in those months, eight who would be 
the President and one who would remain so will 
have crisscrossed this country, pressing the flesh 
and asking themselves whether they have the 
''Right Stuff" needed to capture the "Big Mo." 

The rhetoric of these men, both local and 
national, strikes me as drearily pragmatic and 
businesslike. We hear of a "humanities center," of 
"Megatrends and demographics," of a "down 
payment on the deficit," and of "gunship 

diplomacy." From Mondale to Reagan and from 
Sample to Peterson, the talk of committees and 
commissions has made its paralytic mark. Where 
have the vision and the inspiration gone? Where is 
the soaring oratory, pulling at the heart, making all 
within earshot ache with pride at being an 
American... or a Flying Dutchman? 

I remember the 1980 Democratic National Con- 
vention. It is the first I recall clearly. After being 
"whipped" by President Carter, Senator Edward 
M. Kennedy made a speech. I don't know if he 
cashed in on the "Kennedy mystique," but for a 
few brilliant moments, he held the hopes and hearts 
of the delegates and many Americans in his hands. 

His voice rose and fell, his cadence flowed into the 
old, familiar rhythms. Even though he lost the 
nomination, Ted Kennedy succeeded in making 
many people proud of their citizenship. This rarely 
happens anymore. 

It certainly has not happened in the 1984 
Presidential Campaign, nor has it happened here at 
Lebanon Valley College. Thus, a challenge faces 
presidents in Annville and in Washington. Planning 
and programs will remain vital, but we need 
something more. We need leaders with charisma 
and vision to inspire us to work for a better future. 
The challenge exists. Let us hope our presidents will 
meet it. 

The Vinyl Verdict 

by Diana Carey 

Although no one can deny that orange-haired Cyndi 
Lauper is unusual, her album is not quite as unusual as her 

Lauper's debut album, She's So Unusual, has the perky 
innocence of the Go-Go's and a touch of the B-52's bizarre- 
ness. Although it is an agreeable collection of new wave/pop 
songs, many listeners will feel that it is nothing they haven't 
heard before. 

The most notable song on the album is the hit, Girls Just 
Want To Have Fun. Written by Philadelphia's Robert 
Hazard, Lauper delivers the infectious melody with enthusi- 
astically squeaky vocals. Hazard's song is perfect for her 
image, and she deserves some credit for her wise selection. 

Lauper also uses her good musical judgement in a few other 
instances. She employs one of Philadelphia's most talented 
bands, the Hooters, to back her up on several cuts. By 
drawing in fans of Robert Hazard and the Hooters, she has 
already achieved a cult following in Philadelphia. 

Her decision to record Prince's When You Were Mine is 
another strong selection. It's hard to go wrong with a song by 
one of today's most innovative songwriters. Although 
Lauper's rendition lacks Prince's spontaneity, the 
computerized bubblegum melody complements the hint of 
amusing perversity in the lyrics. 

Most of the other songs are pleasant but discardable dance 
tunes. I'll Kiss You, a story about a gypsy love potion, is 
quirky enough to be interesting. It's a B-52's-type song with 
menacing synthesizers and a strong beat. He's So Unusual is 
the re-make of an authentic 1929 flapper song. Lauper sings 
coyly about a college boy who's "up in his Latin and Greek, 
bu in his chicin' he's weak." 

From this old-fashioned ditty she moves into the outlan- 
dishly modern Yeah, Yeah. While it is basically just another 
synthesized dance song, it features some Yoko Ono noises 
and Lauper's doll-like voice in the background screaming, 
"Sushi, I want sushi!" Unfortunately, most of the lyrics end 
up being "yeah, yeah," which is certainly nothing new. 

The songs are cute, but most listeners soon tire of cuteness. 
So while Cyndi Lauper's album is mildly entertaining, it will 
probably not linger in your memory as long as her orange 

Recipe for Success 

by Julie Gunshenan 

So, you finally did it. You 
asked that special someone to 
help you with your physics. 
Now, what do you do?! The 
next step is easy. You have to 
serve something light, yet 
memorable and it has to be 
versatile. A dip! You could 
have chips or vegetables with 
it, even popcorn! But, what 
kind of dip? 

Here's a recipe that is sure 
to make your physics tutor 



Combine one pint of sour 
cream with four envelopes of 
Lipton's "Cup-a-Soup" 
Spring Vegetable (or your 
favorite flavor — anything but 
onion!) soup mix. Serve with 
chips, pretzels, vegetables, 
popcorn or crackers. 

Incidentally, it works for 
the rest of your classes, too! 

Continiiiiio Education Reviewed

Approximately 280 students 
currently attend LVC week- 
ends and evenings in the col- 
lege's Continuing Education 
Program, according to Marian 
Rogers, current director of the 

Gregory G. Stanson, LVC's 
Dean of Admissions, said the 
program offers "non- 
traditional-age students" (22 
years and older) the chance to 
go back to college. 

Courses are offered eve- 
nings, Monday though Thurs- 
day, and every other weekend, 
Friday nights and Saturdays. 
Students may take up to four 
courses a semester in one of 
five majors. These include ac- 
counting, allied health ser- 
vices, business administration, 
social science with an em- 
phasis in sociology, and social 

For admission to the 
program, the student needs a 

high school diploma or a 
G.E.D. certificate. To gradu- 
ate, the student must fill the 
basic general requirements of 
the college and needs 120 
credit hours of study. 

The program also includes 
summer school, music 
workshops, youth scholars 
and non-credit workshops and 
seminars, according to

supports the college both 
financially and socially. The 
financial support is from

Stanson believes Dr. Arthur 
Peterson, incoming president 
of LVC, will expand the Con- 
tinuing Education program. 
Peterson currently directs the 
Continuing Education 
program at Eckerd College in 

St. Petersburg, Fla., where he 
is Dean of Special Programs 
until March when he assumes 
presidency at LVC. Stanson 
said Peterson seems commit- 
ted to developing the program. 

Ruth Ann Boltz, Lebanon, 
PA, is enrolled as a freshman 
in the program. She said she 
always wanted to go to college 
and chose LVC after her son 
graduated from here in 1982. 
According to Boltz, she is in 
the program for the enrich- 
ment and the career oppor- 
tunities it will lead to, equally. 

Fred Koerner, Lewisberry, 
PA, said he joined the pro-

"Mr. Excitement" at LVC 

It's that time of the year 
again when the college and the 
community get to share in an 
awesome musical experience 
— the LVC Jazz Band's 23rd 
annual campus concert 

Adding to this excitement 
will be "Mr. Excitement" 
himself, Tommy Newsom of 
the Tonight Show. Newsom 
will appear as guest soloist for 
the concert on Friday, Feb. 17, 
at 8 p.m. in Lynch Memorial 

Newsom, often called "Mr. 
Excitement" by Tonight Show 
host Johnny Carson, joined 
the Tonight Show orchestra in 
1962 and was named assistant 
conductor in 1968. Away from 
the Tonight Show orchestra, 
Newsom plays with improm- 
ptu jazz groups and continues 
to arrange and compose for 

the orchestras of Benny 
Goodman, Skitch Henderson, 
Woody Herman, Charlie Byrd 
and Andre Kostelanetz. 

The LVC Jazz Band will 
perform a variety of jazz selec- 
tions, including such favorites 
as In the Mood, Queen Bee, 
Tickle Toe, Funky Joe, Grez- 
ze, and Chuck Mangione's 
Feels So Good. 

Newsom, a graduate of the 
Peabody Conservatory of 
Music, served as a member of 
the Air Force Band from 1953 
to 1956. He received his M.A. 
in music education from 
Columbia University. 

A prolific composer, 
Newsom has composed and 
arranged jingles for many 
television commericals, in- 
cluding Ford, Clairol and 
IT&T. Newsom's or- 

chestration experience encom- 
passes everything from full 
symphony orchestrations to 
piano solos. 

The LVC Jazz Band is a 
student-run and conducted 
organization. Members come 
from all departments of the 
college and must audition each 
year for the band. In addition 
to concerts, the LVC Jazz 
Band plays at various college 
functions and participates in 
collegiate jazz band com- 

The campus concert is the 
highlight of the band's recent 
tour through the Middle 
Atlantic states. Senior Gregg 
Klinger directs this year's 
edition of the "J-Band" and 
Jon Heisey serves as business 
manager. Student tickets are 
$3 and are available at the 
College Center desk.

Anglophiles Go on Tour 

by Kathryn Rolston 

For 12 LVC students, 
faculty and friends, it was the 
best of times, it was the worst 
of times. Fortunately, the 
worst of the three-week tour 
was confined to the first 24 
hours, all of which was spent 
inching out of this country and 
into England. We survived 
however, though I doubt any 
of us will ever fly "You're 
Ready. When We Are" Char- 
ters again. 

Traveling abroad in January 
is not the ideal time weather- 
wise, but it rained very 
seldom. In fact, most of our 
twenty days in England were 
sunny and averaged 45 
degrees. Our first week was 
spent exploring the city, either 
individually or with the group. 
We quickly discovered the 
convenience of the Un- 
derground transport system, 
which is almost faultless and 
connected us to every part of 
the city. 

The group was divided into 
two types: the sightseers and 
the perpetual shoppers. Dr. 
Phillip Billings, our spiritual 
leader and definitely a non- 
shopper, politely led some to 
"Harrods" and the Oxford 
Street shops, but was most 
diligent as tour guide for the 
historic monuments, buildings 
and landmarks that make 
London the fascinating city it 

We did all the tourist things: 
witnessed the changing of the 
guards at Buckingham Palace, 
toured Westminster Abbey 
and the Tower of London, ex- 
perienced the British Museum, 
the London Museum, and the 
National Gallery. 

Our trip, however, went 
beyond any packaged tour, 
and included several excellent 
plays; a back-stage tour of the 
National Theatre; a post- 
performance meeting with 
well-known British actress, 
Judy Dench; a private con- 
ference at our hotel with 
Brideshead Revisited star 
Nicholas Grace; and five day 
trips outside of London. 

Our first trip was to Oxford 
and Stratford-Upon-Avon 
where we saw Twelfth Night 
at the Royal Shakespeare 
Theatre, as well as the house 
where Shakespeare was born. 
During the second week, we 
traveled to Bath, and on the 
way stopped at Salisbury and 
Stonehenge, which stands 
alone in a pasture surrounded 
by herds of unappreciative 
cows. At Bath, we toured the 
ancient Roman baths where 
thousands of ago, Roman men 
came to relax and recover 
from a year of over-eating and 

Our final, and finest, side 
trip was to Cambridge. The 
day was one of our best, sunny 
and mild, and perfect for 
walking and seeing all the old 
colleges and their courtyards. 
There were actually flowers 
blooming in some of the cour- 
tyards, and the grass was 
spring-green. Some of us 
walked though the park to a 
favorite pub of Dr. Billings, 
which he frequented during his 
sabbatical in Cambridge. 

Our last week was left open 
for free travel. Some chose to 
stay in London and take ad- 
vantage of the theatre, others 
took off for Wales, Italy or 
Paris. I went to Edinburgh,

Lebanon Valley Hosts 
Exhibit of Oil Paintings 

Lebanon Valley College will 
host an exhibit by Stowe ar- 
tist Marilyn Dwyer through 
Feb. 26 in the Allan W. Mund 
College Center. The exhibit is 
free and may be viewed daily 
from 8:30 a.m. to midnight. 

Dwyer's exhibit includes 
palette knife and oils. Her 
vivid landscapes depict rural 
Pennsylvania and the New 
England coastal regions in all 
seasons. According to Dwyer, 
her favorite subjects are the 
cluttered fishing trawlers, 
quiet woodland streams and 
ramshackle barns that she fin- 
ds in those areas. 

A native of Allentown, 

where she studied for eight 
years with Dr. Walton E. 
Baum, Dwyer has also studied 
at the Moore College of Art 
and taught for six years in 
private academic schools. In 
addition to her own exhibits 
and lecture-demonstrations, 
she also serves as a juror for 
competitive art shows. 

Dwyer has won honors and 
awards for various gallery, 
community and campus 
exhibits from Maine to the 
Mid- Atlantic coastal region. 
Her private gallery, located in 
Stowe, regularly attracts art 
buyers from a widespread

The Man with the Eraser 

Dr. Ralph Shay to Retire 
After 36 Years of Service 

by Peter Johansson 

People come and go. Some 
are missed more than others. 
Next week one of these old, 
familiar faces will be gone. 
Every student on this campus 
will have seen him at least 
seven times in the course of 
four years at LVC. After thir- 
ty-six years of service, Dr. 
Ralph Shay, Dean of the 
Registrar, will retire on Feb. 

Shay spent his un- 
dergraduate years at LVC 
(class of '42), then went to the 
University of Pennsylvania for 
graduate work in history. In 
the spring of 1947, he was ap- 
proached by Dr. Frederic 
Miller, then chairman of the 
history department, and asked 
to teach history at the college. 
In the fall of 1948 he began 
teaching, finishing twenty 
years later as a full professor. 
At that point, Shay's career 
had just begun. 

In the fall of 1967, Shay 
took on his responsibilities as 
Dean of the Registrar, while 
still teaching in the classroom. 
He stopped teaching in the 
spring of 1968 to become 
Chairman of the history/po- 
litical science department for 
one year, until Dr. Geffen 
took over in the spring of 
1969. From then until now, he 

has been "The Man" to make 
or break your academic 

Which is not quite fair to 
say. When interviewing Dr. 
Shay, I asked him about his 
duties, and the amount of 
work and ocean of red tape is 
enough to drive any sane man 
batty. In addition to staring at 
800+ students' pre- 
registration cards, Shay is con- 
stantly putting out statistics, 
working out academic 
schedules (the students' and 
the faculty's), checking 
grades, verifying enrollment 
for scholarships, bank loans, 
Veteran's and Social Security 
benefits, approving transcripts 
for summer courses, certifying 
teachers, and working with 
Dean Richard Reed to place 
students on and off academic 
probation. After hearing this, 
I felt guilty asking him why I 
had to fill out another 
statistical card every time I 
pre-registered. Shay says it's 
so that his office is sure of get- 
ting changes in statistics, and 
that it lessens a little of his 
own work. No problem. 

What will he be doing with 
his free time? Plenty. Shay has 
been elected to the Board of 
Trustees of his Moravian 
Church, and is chairman of

that, Shay plans to catch up on 
some reading, "loaf a lot," 
play the saxophone (his wife 
plays piano), rest and exercise. 

I asked Shay what he would 
miss most about his years at 
the college. He was most fond 
of his days as a history 
professor.- He enjoyed injec- 
ting humor into his classes, of- 
ten citing from texts such as // 
All Started with Columbus, 
and 1066, and All That. Shay 
said, "If I kept things alive, I 
could do a more serious job of 
teaching." He feels that the 
strength of the college lies in 
an "outstanding faculty," a 
faculty he says is on a par with 
most colleges, even graduate 
schools in the United States. 

We will miss Dr. Shay. Most 
of us had very little idea of the 
work he did here, but the 
change will be more than a 
new face at pre-registration. 
We are saying goodbye to an 
old friend of the college, one 
whose spirit and dedication 
made a great impact on us all.

Peterson Establishes 
Planning Committee 


by Amy Hosteller 

A five-year strategic plan- 
ning committee, chaired by 
LVC's new president, Arthur 
L. Peterson, will "take a look 
at short-term and long-term 
goals" of the college, accor- 
ding to F. Allen Rutherford, 
Jr., acting president. 

Announced by Peterson at 
the opening convocation, the 
committee, composed of four 
administrators, four depart- 
ment chairmen, two trustees, 
Peterson and Rutherford, will 
explore several areas of the 
college including enrollment, 
the need for new facilities and 
the utilization of present 
facilities. "My idea is that not 
all areas would wait to be 
changed until a longer plan is 
completed," said Rutherford. 

"In some areas, change can be 
recommended before the plans 
are finalized." Peterson has 
challenged the committee to 
complete the plan by Septem- 
ber 1,1984. 

Rutherford said the com- 
mittee will "look at the 
enrollment picture. We have 
to review the marketing plan 
to increase enrollment." He 
added that Peterson has ex- 
pressed concern about con- 
tinuing education for adults 
and will make recommen- 
dations to the committee along 
those lines. 

"Presently, the committee is 
considering whether it is 
necessary to use a software 
package for the committee's 
use. Once that decision is 

made, we have to decide what 
information to feed into the 
process," Rutherford said. 
Committee members are in- 
vestiating types of packages 
available for strategic plan- 
ning; the decision will then af- 
fect the approach the commit- 
tee will take on the plan itself. 

Ruherford said the commit- 
tee intends to solicit ideas 
from the various areas of the 
college community, although 
specific details have not been 
arranged. He did, however, 
mention possible task force 
sub-committees and open 
forum meetings as two options 
under consideration. 

The idea for a strategic 
planning committee was first 
initiated by the college's recent 

Convocation Planning: 
An Exercise in Creativity 

by Lisa Meyer 

A chapel convocation series 
on creativity is appropriate, 
since planning the chapels is it- 
self a creative process. 

Planning is "an inexact 
process, as most creative 
processes are. I guess the story 
behind how each series comes 
about is different," Chaplain 
John A. Smith said. 

Ideas for convocations 
come from brainstorming 
sessions by the Chapel Com- 
mittee, which is "constantly 
generating ideas," according 
to Smith. A preferential voting 
system decides which ideas ac- 
tually make it to Tuesday 

The committee accepts ideas 
from anyone on campus, but 
Smith does not believe that a 
campus poll would clearly in- 
dicate student interests. "I 
have more faith in people 
coming up with and creatively 
building on each other's ideas 
that I do in polls to determine 
student interest," Smith said.

Students suggesting ideas 
should not be disappointed, 
however, if they do not see 
immediate results. The com- 
mittee discussed doing an 
alcohol series for several years 
before finally presenting last 
fall's series. 

Smith suggested that in- 
cluding students who represent 
broad segments of the LVC 
student body might help the 
committee get a better idea of 
student interest. Faculty in- 
teraction with students curren- 
tly provides this information. 

The final segment of the 
creativity series will allow 
students to experience the 
creative process for them- 
selves. Student Activities 
Director Cheryl Reihl said, 
"Creation is participatory, so 
we decided we ought to have 
something where people get to 

"We're not hitting the 
sciences (in the series), so we 
came up with the idea of a 
creativity fair," Reihl siad. 
Students will compete for 
prizes in several categories on 

Feb. 21 at 11 a.m. in the 
College Center. 

Some of the areas of com- 
petition will include 
storywriting, water glass 
melody composition, tooth- 
pick structure building, food 
creating, clothing design with 
glue and pins, and theatrical 
improvisation. A computer 
game tournament will also 
take place. 

Students and faculty with 
creative hobbies are invited to 
exhibit their work at the fair. 
Prior creations such as 
needlepoint, paintings, 
ceramic works and 
photographs may be submit- 
ted for exhibition. No prizes 
will be awarded for this part of 
the fair. 

Chapel Committee members 
include Cheryl Reihl, Dr.

Hearst, Dr. Klement Ham-

such planning was referred to 
in the Middle States 
Evaluation report as well as in 
other reports. 

Committee members were 
chosen based on several fac- 
tors. Rutherford said he chose 
faculty members which 
"represent the spread of 
student enrollment, including 
science, business and the 
humanities." Richard Stone, 
chairman of the department of 
business, has considerable ex- 
perience in strategic planning, 
according to Rutherford. The 
two trustees, Edward H. Ar- 
nold and Thomas C. Reinhart, 
have used similar planning 
techniques in their busineses.

Marquette's opinion, last

roaming in the halls by non- 
residents of a dorm, and a 
decrease in the number of 
times the back doors of the 
women's dorms were propped 
ajar. In addition, no one has 
complained about unescorted 
guests in the halls during the 
extended weekend hours.

Dr. Arthur L. Peterson, 
Lebanon Valley College's 
president-elect, spoke on the 
topic "1984— Fact or Fic- 
tion?" at the Second Semester 
Opening Convocation on 
Jan. 24. 

After i elating several anec- 
dotes from his past, Peterson 
proceeded to discuss 1984 by 
George Orwell. Peterson saw 
the book as "a warning of the 
possible deterioration of the 
human experience in this cen- 

Peterson noted that the 
slogan "Big Brother is wat- 
ching you" is inexorably 
linked, in most minds, with 
Orwell's book. 

Citing California futurist 
David Goodwin, Peterson said 
that the major items of Or- 
well's prognosis are in place. 

Peterson differed with 
Goodwin, saying, "We're not 
using technology only in a bad 
way." He added, "The future 
is indeed full of boundless ex- 
citing opportunities." Peter- 
son labeled himself an op- 

Peterson said, "There is a 
danger if leaders suppress the 
search for truth. They court 
disaster. This need not hap- 

He also noted that "militant 
liberalism and extreme conser- 
vatism have solidified into or- 
thodoxies." Thus there is little 
new discussion of the 
possibilities of 1984 coming 

Into this vacuum steps "The 
church-related, liberal arts 
college, prevailing against Big 
Brother-dehumanization," as- 
serted Peterson. 

"Liberal arts colleges like 
Lebanon Valley are needed 
like never before to produce 
leaders whose professional 
competence is matched by an 
active belief in the values of 
the individual person," said 

After noting that Orwell 
conceived of 1984 the year by 
transposing the last two digits 
of 1948, Peterson reversed 
"19" to obtain 1991, Lebanon 
Valley College's 125th an- 

He then listed several items 
this college needs to be strong 
in 1991. Peterson will chair a 
long-range planning com- 
mission to study the college's 
possible futures. 

"We need the ideas and 
support of everyone to suc- 
ceed," Peterson said. "We 
have what we need to become 
what we wish."

"I would prefer that we had 
no complaints," said 
Marquette, "but we fell short 
in several instances." The 
major complaint centered on 
roommate problems when one 
student is always asked to 

Other problems Marquette 
noted included unregistered, 
overnight, off-campus guests; 
men showering in the women's 
dorms; and students breaking 
the weekday (noon to mid- 
night) intervisitation. 

"Overall, I have no major 
complaints," Marquette said. 
"Stepping back, I'd say it was 
an exceptionally fine semester." 


Citing the challenges posed 
by Megatrends and 
demographics, Peterson ob- 
served, "Liberal arts colleges 
are challenged to change 

He also said that the in- 
creasing use of high 
technology needs to be balan- 
ced by the "human touch." 
This college can provide "the 
humanistic perspective to in- 
tegrate technological 
knowledge with human ex- 
perience. The human invest- 
ment is the greatest investment 
we can make." 

Peterson claimed that "the 
antithesis of the technical and 
the humanistic is fallacious." 
The college should "train 
human and humane leaders" 
as it "attempts to build better 
bridges between the campus 
and careers." 

Lebanon Valley College 
must do three things to 
become stronger by 1991. It 
must "give up the illusion of 
self-sufficiency;" it must "in- 
crease the satisfaction of the 
faculty and the staff;" and it 
must "sustain the centrality of

L VC Quiz Bowl 
Set for Kick-off 

LVC will host the fourth 

annual High School Quiz 

Bowl on March 24. Invitations 

are sent out to all high schools 

in the nine counties of Adams, 

Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, 

Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, 

Schuylkill, and York. While 

the schools are preparing to at- 
tend the Quiz Bowl, Dr. 
Robert Clay, department 
chairman of sociology, and his 
committee organize the event 

One of the biggest tasks in 
front of these people is to 
prepare questions for the Quiz 
Bowl. Clay estimates that thus 
far, 2,800 questions have been 
asked. Initially, the committee 
solicits questions from the 
faculty. After that, almost 
anything can inspire a 
question. For example, have 
you ever eaten shoe-fly pie? 
Ever wonder what's in it? 
Good question! 

Naturally, trivia is not the 
only type of knowledge 

To maintain the questions in 
order, the committee uses the 
Shenk Room in the library. 
Committee members separate 
questions by category, and the 
piles begin to grow. If an an- 
swer needs to be confirmed, 
the sources are immediately at 

All questions are not as 
"straight forward" as the last 
one. Here's one with a 
"twist." Where would you 
find the following circuses? 
Circus Maximum, Picadilly 
Circus, and Ringling Bros.

Questions are not the only 
task involved with preparing 
for the Quiz Bowl. Blair Music 
Center has to be provided with 
an extensive electrical system 
for communications during 
the many rounds of com- 
petition. Phones are connected 
in every room for the oc- 

In the morning, the playoff 

necessary to succeed in this rounds are held. After lunch,

into four basic categories: the teams drop out. After the

from LVC for the time that 
will be spent abroad and 
enrolls in the foreign college. 

The student does not 
necessarily live in quarters 
with the foreign students but 
sometimes with other ex- 
change students. This program 
does not always allow as much 
foreign exposure as the ISEP 
program, although a few 
colleges do allow more ex- 
posure than others. 

Expenses for the Central 
College program are paid 
directly to the foreign univer- 
sities and vary accordingly. 
Financial aid is often lost for 
the time spent abroad since the 
program has no official af- 
filiation with LVC. 

If the LVC student were to 
attend the college in Central 
London, the student would

the classes would also be in the 
townhouse. The classes are 
taught mostly by part-time 
professionals. Also, the 
students would be required to 
take specific courses, although 
the credit can be transfered 
back to LVC. 

In Wales, however, the LVC 
student would live among the 

Welsh. Also, the student 
would be allowed to take cour- 
ses from the entire college 

Each of these two allows 
time for extra travel. In the

tours are offered free as part 
of the curriculum.

Women's Basketball on Winning Roll 

photo by Dave Ferruzza 

In a Huddle— Coach Jim Smith gives the Dutchgals, Penny Hamilton, Steph Smith, Beth 
Anderson and Holly Zimmer, a new offense. In spite of this, the LVC women lost to 
Susquehanna University on Monday evening. 

Contribution and talent 
seem to account for Dut- 
chgal's coach Jim Smith's 
new-found confidence. The 
team's 8-5 record, considering 
last year's 4-11 record, hasn't 
hurt it either. 

Many other factors, how- 
ever, have helped this new 
found confidence along, inclu- 
ding the return of sophomore 
Dicksie Boehler, an All Middle 
Atlantic Conference perfor- 
mer last year, and Laurie 
Kratzer, Lebanon Valley's 
leading rebounder last year. 
Stand-out freshmen Steph 
Smith and Penny Hamilton 
have added speed and scoring 
to the team of thirteen. 

Despite their lack of depth, 
a ghost that has been haunting 
them all through the season, 
the team is still in contention 
for a spot in the Middle Atlan- 
tic Conference playoffs. 
Coach Smith points out that 
this spot in the playoffs will 
have to be won with an away 
game schedule. The Dutchgals 

next three games are away, 
with only one more regular 
season game at home. 

Lack of depth hasn't been 
the only hurdle that Coach 
Smith and his players have had 
to overcome. The team is the 
smallest in the MAC and 
(throughout the season) have 
been up against several high- 
ranked schools. Coach Smith 
attributed the team's success 
to all-around contributions 
from all the players, even the 
ones who do not play 

"I am very proud of the 
girls. They have over-shot my 
goals and expectations. There 
is no way they could disap- 
point me now," he said. 

Smith has led the Dutchgals 
in scoring in every game but 
one. Hamilton paced the 
Dutchgals in that game with 20 
points and 15 rebounds. 
Hamilton leads the team in 
rebounding, with 109 for the 
season. She is followed by 
Kratzer, who has pulled 88 
from the boards.

Valley Downs 
for Sixth Win 

by Tracy Wenger 

The Dutchmen basketball 
squad brought its home-court 
record to six wins and two 
losses as it defeated Eliz- 
bethtown, 75-73, Monday 
night. Bert Kreigh led all 
scorers with 26 points, while 
he contributed four steals. 
Freshman Steve Whitman led 
the LVC team in rebounds 
(11), while Pat Zlogar made 
seven assists. 

Against Dickinson on 
Feb. 4, the Dutchmen pulled 
out in front to win 79-60. 
Kreigh led scoring with 22, 
rebounding with 11, and 
stealing with four. Zlogar con- 
tributed an impressive 13 
assists to help seal the win. 
Allentown also fell prey to the 
Dutchmen, 81-70. Kreigh 
paced the LVC team with 22,

In a losing streak, the LVC 
matmen lost to Johns Hopkins 
23-19 on Jan. 25. Later, the 
team lost to Muhlenberg (31- 
16) and Swarthmore (27-23). 

"We should have beaten 
Swarthmore," says Coach 
Gerry Petrofes, "but we split 
bouts 5-5, and things just 
didn't fall our way." He adds 
that there have been many 
surprises this season. "Some 
matches I expected to win, we 
lost; and some I thought we 
would lose, we won." In the 
last eight meets, Petrofes has 
not been able to use the same 
line-up twice, a definite strike 
against the LVC team.

Maryland match, both Jeff

grabbed 10 from the boards to 
lead the rebounders. 

On Jan. 31, the men lost a 
discouraging 102-83 game to 
Western Maryland. Kreigh 
netted 19 and Whitman jum-

losing effort. 

In a nail-biter against 
Moravian, Fred Siebecker 
sunk a jumper with seconds

scoring with 17 and he pulled 
down 10 boards. Zlogar con- 
tributed six assists and Kreigh 
had 2 steals. 

Previously, the team had a 
streak of five losses beginning 
with a 98-90 loss to Shippen- 
sberg in the Carlisle Tour-

Trustees Hike L VC Costs 

by Amy Hosteller 

The LVC Board of Trustees 
voted to raise the 1984-85 fees 
for full time students to 
$8,760, a $1,000 increase, last 

The charges, recommended 
to the board by Robert Riley, 
vice president and controller 
of the college, represent a 12.8 
percent increase. Acting 
president F. Allen Rutherford 
Jr. said, "After much 
discussion, the committee 
decided we had to raise the 
fees at least $1,000." 

The cost breaks down as 

Tuition $5,850 
Student fee 200 
Room 1,150 
Board 1,560 


Riley based the fees on 800 
full-time students for 1984-85. 
This year, the college did not 
recruit and retain the 

necessary number of students. 
Riley says this caused a 
"short-fall" of $150,000 
directly due to the loss of 
student revenues. "It is highly 
impossible to end the year in 
the black," he said. 

Rutherford, a member of 
the committee making the 
recommendation, said, "The 
$1,000 doesn't give us very 
much leeway" as the college 
does not have an operating 
reserve of monies. He added 
that he considers the hold on 
tuition two years ago as a "10 
percent rebate," that the 
students got a "free ride" that 

Student revenues account 
for 85 percent of the current 
operating costs, according to 
Riley. A loss of student 
revenues can seriously affect 
the college's financial 
situation, he said. "I'm alerting 
the board... that we face a 

deficit. I can only say that we 
are doing whatever we can" to 
avoid that possibility, Riley 

Riley and Rutherford led a 
discussion with board mem- 
bers on the relationship bet- 
ween fees and student 
enrollment. "We're faced with 
two things," said Rutherford. 
"We have to decide if we want 
to increase the quality or 
quantity of students." 

In LVC's favor, Riley poin- 
ted out that LVC has con- 
sistently kept its fees lower 
than most liberal arts private 
colleges in the area. "It's 
reasonable to assume that we 
wouldn't change our 'ranking' 
very , much" when other 
colleges announce their fees 
for the coming year. He said 
the average increase will range 
from 9-13 percent, while the 
median cost will be about

Malfunctions Complicate Dormitory Life 

by Melissa Horst 

What's happening here at 
LVC? Is everything falling 
apart at once? 

Funkhouser's fire alarm 
system and hot water 
generator were broken, and 
residents of Mary Green 
smelled gas. 

Dean of Students George 
Marquette says these problems 
were "unfortunate and unfor- 
seeable." Since the problems 
were discovered, "Maintenan- 
ce has been doing everything 
m their power to correct 
them," he added. 

Samuel Zearfoss, superin- 
tendent of buildings and 

grounds responded to 
questions about the various 
Hot Water Problems- 
According to Zearfoss, 
shortly after the students 
returned from Christmas 
vacation, he received a report 
that Funkhouser was running 
out of hot water. 

When maintenance workers 
checked the generator, they 
found three of the 12 electric 
elements that heat the water 
had exploded. Zearfoss said 
there is no way to predict when 
this will happen. "They just 
wear out," he said. 

Zearfoss called the college's 
supplier, and shortly thereaf- 
ter he had three elements to 
replace the broken ones. Then 
the problems started. 

In the course of replacing 
the elements, workers broke 
two more. Zearfoss said in or- 
der to fix the elements a 
worker must crawl into the 
boiler over the element bun- 

This time Zearfoss called 
the manufacturer, Patterson- 
Kelly, in East Stroudsburg. 
Soon he had three more 
elements, but when they were 
connected and the boiler filled 

with water, the maintenance 
workers discovered the the 
boiler now leaked. 

Next, Zearfoss ordered an 
entire new bundle of 12 
elements. Patterson-Kelly 
assured him they would give 
his order top priority. Zear- 
foss says the company had to 
stop their assembly line to 
specially manufacture the 

According to Zearfoss, 
several days passed before he 
learned that the bundle had 
not passed the quality control 
checks. Patterson-Kelly runs a 
series of electrical and 
hydrostatic checks before 

they sell the unit. The bundle 
failed the hydrosataic test — in 
short, it leaked. 

Zearfoss informed Patter- 
son-Kelly to remachine the 
defective elements they had 
previously sent, in order to 
provide a temporary fix until 
the new bundle is ready to go. 

On Friday, February 17, 
Zearfoss drove to East Strouds- 
burg to pick up the remachined 
elements, and by 7:15 p.m. the 
maintenance men had the hot 
water running. 

The new unit is still at the

by Lorraine Englert 

"Student Council hasn't 
been operating quite under the 
constitution," said student 
Mark Scott, who organized an 
open forum meeting held on 
Feb. 21 for student council 
members, LVC students and 
Student Activities Director 
Cheryl Reihl. 

Under the current con- 
stitution, "The purpose of 
student council is to plan ac- 
tivities and voice student con- 
cerns," said Wendy Carter, 
student council president. 
However, Scott said, "There 
is no conventional way to get 
complaints across." 

Student Council, according 
to Scott, is actually a "student 
activities council." Carter 
supports Scott's idea of 
creating a "structure within 
student council" to deal with 
student concerns. 

Scott pointed out the recent 
cost increase in local telephone 
calls as a "student concern." 
He said, "Everyone is fuming, 
but they don't know what to 
do about it." 

Prior to the increase, several 
LVC students asked for more 
intercampus telephones at the 
open forum meeting held in 
December with members of 
the Board of Trustees. 
"Student council is addressing 
the phone situation," said 
Scott, adding there are many 
other ideas and concerns for 
which students don't have an 

At this point, Scott has two 
ideas for dealing with student 
concerns. One would involve a 
completely different commit- 
tee devised to work in the area 
of student concerns. The other 
alternative is to divide student 
council into two committees, 
each one with sole respon- 
sibility for either student

Play it Again, Sam 

Well, the Board of Trustees did it again — they raised the 
cost to attend LVC. Next year, for a full-time resident 
student, LVC, the pinnacle of liberal arts education, will cost 
$8,760, a $1,000 increase over this year. 

Due to inflation? Not likely, as the inflation rate now 
stands about three percent. Costs have risen, but, according 
to Dr. Robert Riley, vice president and controller of LVC, 
85-90 percent of the college's costs are fixed. So why the 12.8 
percent increase? 

Good question. It appears that Riley and the committee on 
finance and investment base the fees on a prediction of the 
number of full-time students. This year, Riley was wrong. 

LVC now has 757 full-time paying students. Not a good 
number, especially when the projected figure was substan- 
tially higher. LVC costs for next year are based on an average 
of 800 students, which means more than 800 must enroll in 
the fall semester, as the attrition rate sharply increases during 
the spring semester. 

Riley lost his prediction, and now he says the college has a 
"short-fall" of $150,000 directly due to a loss of student 
revenues. In the best of capitalistic traditions, the Board of 
Trustees has passed on the burden of the loss to the students, 
who now face an education bill equal to some parents' 

Notably, the board members did not consider how students 
and parents will afford the cost of a liberal arts education at 
LVC, nor did they ask the student trustees for their opinions. 

Instead, they blithely swallowed Riley's assurances of 
increased financial aid, which did not happen this year. One 
trustee even gallantly pointed out that when the trustees 
admirably held costs two years ago, the student enrollment 
did not substantially increase. 

The trustees obviously think an increase will do the 
same — not a thing to enrollment. Many students are already 
considering transferring to state institutions as the cost is 
usually half that of LVC's. 

The trustees are very proud of LVC's tuition track record. 
LVC consistently has been cheaper than most of the similar 
colleges in the central and southeastern Pennsylvania areas 
and may continue to hold that position. However, colleges 
like Dickinson and Franklin and Marshall have more to offer 
for the money. Raising the charges so drastically is a form of 
economic Darwinsim — the college will kill off the better 
students who can't afford LVC. 

What will the increase get us? Hot water? Maybe. 
Adequately maintained facilities (if only the college would 
spend some money on maintenance...)? Hardly. What that 
one thousand extra dollars will buy us (and remember, 
students are consumers who can take their business elsewhere) 
is more of the same, unfortunately. When one buys a car 
priced $1,000 more than another, one can expect and will 
receive better quality. 

Too bad it's not that way at the Valley. Good luck, 
underclassmen. Hope your pockets are well-lined. 

The Vinyl Verdict 

by Diana Carey 

Lennonism Lives 

Milk and Honey, by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, is an in- 
timate experience, from the candid lyrics to the nude photo 
on the inside of the album cover. 

Surprisingly, it is not a haphazard collection of fragments, 

but a group of complete and polished songs. Compiled from 
Lennon's last recording sessions, this album continues the 
theme of the Double Fantasy album. Lennon and Ono once 
again explore the feelings of mature adults coming to terms 
with their past and looking confidently towards the future. 

No matter how well-done the album is, there will be some 
listeners to whom it won't appeal. Those who like elaborate 
ear-catching gimmicks and cheap musical thrills may be bored 
by the quiet sentimentality of Milk and Honey. Ono's "Don't 
Be Scared" merely states, "It's better to love than to never 
love at all." The message is almost embarrassingly simple, 
but the song has more emotional honesty than any Top-40 
love song you can name. 

Other listeners may not be open-minded enough to accept 
Ono's brand of experimental music. Her childlike soprano 
voice and lyrical simplicity sound foreign to the traditional 
rock audience. Modern music, however, is catching up with 
her innovations, and her style is finally beginning to be ap- 

Lennon's songs show that he has reached both musical and 
lyrical maturity. "(Forgive Me) My Little Flower Princess" is 
the culmination of his long-time interest in reggae. Lennon has 

fun with the laid-back, tropical beat, arousing the listener's 
anticipation by ending some lines in mid-sentence. In "Bor- 
rowed Time," another reggae number, Lennon reveals he is 
much more comfortable with middle age than he was with his 
turbulent younger years. He is even more direct about his past 
in "I Don't Wanna Face it:" 

' 'Say you 're looking for some peace and love 

Leader of a big old band 

You wanna save humanity 

But it's people that you just can 't stand. " 

The most moving songs were the two companion pieces, 
"Let Me Count the Ways" and "Grow Old With Me," in 
which Lennon and Ono envision themselves as Robert and 
Elizabeth Barrett Browning. 

In "Let Me Count the Ways," Ono expresses her love with 
an innocent, Sunday school-type melody and a muffled piano 

According to the liner notes, Lennon hoped "Grow Old 
With Me" would become a classic wedding song. Backed up 
only by piano and rhythm box, the song has a stark beauty 
reminiscent of "Imagine," and a delicate melody that will 
make it the class he hoped it would become. 

"Grow Old With Me" is a symbol of the entire album. The 
Lennons dare to be openly sentimental. They don't fear their 
emotions, and the result is a personal experience that listeners 
can still share long after Lennon's death.

The Right Stuff 

by Pete Johansson 

Civil disobediance on college campuses seems to have gone 
the way of hula hoops and dodo birds, and that is into the 
yawning, slavering jaws of The Past. Ask some of your 
professors about it, and they'll either go all dreamy-eyed 
reminiscing, or they'll shake their heads, muttering something 
about Communist agitators, depending on their age. 

That's a pity, because there's an awful darn lot to be civilly 
disobedient about these days. Take last week. Until last 
Saturday, the resident of Funkhouser had gone the semester 
without hot water (something more or less promised in the 
housing agreement), and the fire alarm system still isn't 

I worry about this, because I'm a pretty sound sleeper. 
Taking showers in a parka is bad enough, but I don't relish the 
idea of roasting like a pig at a barbecue just because my R. A. 
"forgot" to wake me up because I've hassled him too many 
times about the water. It seems some type of student response 
is in order, and civil disobedience used to do the trick. 

I say "used to" because it's hard to imagine some of the 
standard ploys being effective at good ole LVC. Imagine, if 
you will, an abrupt cease in student apathy. Let's just suppose 
the students here got fed up enough to have a go at the big 
CD. What would result? Disappointment, I'm afraid. To 

— The Sit-In. 

The Sit-in requires a large group of people passively 
obstructing an important building. On campus this would 
most likely be the Administration Building (the idea is to pick 
a site frequented by the people you're complaining to. A Sit-In 
at the Art Studio would really miss the boat.). These people 
must remain there long enough to create a proper nuisance. 

CD. at LVC? 

This could never happen here. At 3:00, some would leave to 
watch General Hospital. Others would go to watch Dr. Who, 
or Star Trek. (It's difficut to imagine anyone who would 
watch these shows participating in a Sit-In, anyway.) 

I myself have a particular penchant for The Rockford Files 
and The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. There goes about 50% 
of the student population. The music majors would soon 
succumb to Blair withdrawal, and the rest would split for the 
next Grove. End of Sit-In. 

— Taking Over the President's Office. 

This would have no noticeable effect. 
— Trashing the Dean's Office. 

See "Taking over the President's Office." 
— The Demonstration. 

The idea of a demonstration is to have a mass of people 
parade around campus carrying signs, singing, chanting, 
blocking traffic, and in general, creating a nuisance. 
Universities such as Harvard and Kent State combat this by 
calling in the National Guard. Lebanon Valley College would 
combat this by calling in the Annville Police Department. The 
student body would be helpless in throes of laughter as 
Officer Finkle tries to get eight hundred people into a squad 
car, and the business of the school would go on as usual. 

So you see, the normal avenues of Civil Disobedience just 
wouldn't work, even if students did have the will to tear 
themselves away from their sordid personal lives long enough 
to actually do something. We won't let anyone in Adminis- 
tration know what's going on, so it is our Manifest Destiny to 
sit and suffer. Because if we don't respond somehow, no one 
will seem to know that we don't like paying $1,000 more a 
year to live the way we do. . . 

Actors Outshine Plays in One-Acts 

by Scott Kirk 

Individual performances 
overshadowed Alpha Psi 
Omega's One Act plays them- 
selves in the student-directed 
Showtyme presented last 
Friday and Saturday. 

Despite poor audiences, the 
actors managed to save 
mediocre plays with some 
decent character portrayals. 

"Ah, Eurydice!" updated 
the myth of Orpheus, a man 
attempting to rescue his bride 
from Hades after she chokes on 
a chicken bone. Neill Keller as 
Orpheus projected well and 
incited good reaction to his 
comic lines. But as the tem- 
pted husband struggling with 
himself, he just couldn't

performed last weekend in the Little Theater. 

emote with enough conviction. 
Ruth Robinson as Eurydice 
did a reasonably good job por- 
traying Eurydice, the nagging, 
blabby wife. In fact, she pretty 
much kept the play afloat. 

Dave Cass as the unflin- 
ching Pluto made a good ef- 
fort, but he was about as 
threatening as Mickey 
Mouse's cartoon pet with 
post-nasal drip. 

Director Pete Johansson's 
blocking for his character 
didn't help much, 
either— Cass' back-and-forth 
pacing seemed too random. I, 
and many others in the 
audience, missed the 
significance of the song, 
"Needless to Say," playing 
while Cass slouched in his 
chair at the beginning. 

"Andante," directed by 
Amy Hostetler, involved a 
former violinist attempting to 
cope with the termination of 
his career, and how he comes 
to terms with his prodigy son. 

The leads, Bud Drake, Ross 
Hoffman and Tina Bakowski, 
held tight with some really 
solid performances. Drake 
boomed his powerful voice in- 
to the character of David 
Lawrence, a man who 
isolates himself in self-pity. As 
his frightened wife living in a 
fantasy world, Bakowski puts 
some real concern into her 
character. And as the son, 

Hoffman emoted especially 
well in the scene where he 
submerges into a panicked 
frenzy as his father attempts 

Supporting characters in 
"Andante" included Kevin 
Biddle as the doctor and 
Stephanie Butter as the maid. 
For his brief first performance 
on the LVC stage, Biddle did 
well as the dedicated doctor, 
considering we only saw him 
briefly. But since the character 
was basically a filler, we really 
could not see inside him. 
Nevertheless, Biddle managed 
to keep his concen- 
tration — even after a poster 
fell off the backdrop in Sun- 
day night's performance. 

Butter's character of the 
maid was a different story.

Letter to 
the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

Maybe I'm giving this issue 
more attention than it deser- 
ves, but I believe something 
should be said about a certain 
sorority that has been ap- 
pearing on campus in sup- 
posedly "punk" attire. This 
act is not only personally of- 
fending to me and my beliefs, 
but I believe it is embarassing 
to the sorority itself. If they 
were more aware of what punk 
really means, they would 
realize this. 

Punk is not a fad-ish way of 
dressing. It is a statement that 
is more than just a look. Punk 
is not putting on a mini skirt 
and dying your hair blue — 
society's stereotype which is 
technically new wave anyway. 
Punk is an attitude. It is anti- 
society, non-conforming, anti- 
tradition, and most definitely 
anti-status. It seems rather 
ironic that a sorority would 
even want to associate itself 
with these ideas. Aren't 
sororities supposed to be 
social and service 
organizations? How com- 
pletely opposite can you get? 
It seems to me if you were 
more aware of the punk 
culture you would see how 
ignorant you appear. Punk 
should not be used as some 
cutesy image for the status- 
seeking cliques of LVC. Next 
time, think before you attempt 
to ridicule minorities like 
punkers. We don't mock the 
Sears Mentality so prevalent 
around here, so show us some 
courtesy as well.

Did you ever have one of 
those days when you just did 
not want to write that English 
paper or read those three 
chapters of accounting that 
are due on Monday? Well, the 
next time you get the urge to 
procrastinate, you will have a 
good reason. You have to try 
that recipe which was given to 
you by a friend, me.

2 liters 7 UP or ginger ale 
1 gallon orange juice 

6-8 cups chopped fruit; apples, 

oranges, cherries, etc. 
1 quart sherbet, any flavor 

There are two ways to serve 
this, right out of the punch 
bowl or freeze it and crush it in 

a blender. Substitutions can be 
made it you do not think this 
recipe has enough "punch" 
for you.

Computers Infiltrate English Department 

by Lisa Meyer 

Lebanon Valley College 
now has a machine that can 
help students write better 
papers. All it takes is an hour's 
instruction and a little prac- 
tice. This amazing machine is 
called a word processor. 

At Dean of Faculty Richard 
Reed's suggestion, Dr. Arthur 
Ford, chairman of the English 
department, and Dr. Leon 
Markowicz, professor of 
English, decided to run a con- 
trolled experiment using the 
word processor. They want to 
see what differences in writing 
quality occur between students 
using the word processor and 
those not using it. 

All of Ford's and 
Markowicz' English 112 
students now keep records of 
the amount and type of 
revisions they make. The 
amount of time each group 
spends in rewriting will be 
compared at the end of the 

Ford said, "I was struck by 
the fact that our students in 
freshman English do little 
rewriting. I find that when I 
use a word processor I do a lot 
more rewriting than when I am 
faced with a blank piece of 

Rewriting can affect quality 
as well as quantity. "Iam also 
convinced," said Markowicz, 
"that the time spent on the 
rewriting makes the final 
product much better in 
quality. I think if the student 
sees the rewriting as a step in 
the final process that puts out 
a better paper, he will put 
more into it." 

So far, the experiment 
seems successful. Mike 
Stachow, one of the students 
involved, said, "I am doing 
more editing. Overall, there is 
probably not that much dif- 
ference in the kind of editing I 
am doing, but I am being more 
choosy about the kinds of 
words I am using." 

Another student, Mary Dit- 
zler, agreed. "I do not get 
discouraged by the thought 
that I have to type this all over 
again. That is probably one of 
the best things, that it makes it 
so easy for corrections." 

Ford and Markowicz en- 
vision word processing even- 
tually taught to all English 111/ 
112 students in the future. 
Markowicz said, "Speaking as 
an individual, I would like all 
my students to have a ter- 
minal. I would have a terminal 
in my office and the computer 
would become a means of 

Ford explained that having 
all students use terminals 
would mean instructors would 
have immediate access to 
students' papers at all stages. 
Professors could then easily 
look at those papers and make 
suggestions before they were 
submitted for grading. 

Ditzler supports word 
processor competency for all 
students. She said, "Word 
processors are going to replace 
the typewriter in the work- 
place. It is a skill that they 
ought to get, especially 
business students and others 
who have to write." 

Stachow, however, thinks 
individual interest should be a 
consideration. "If they are in- 
terested in learning to work on 
the processor," he said, "I 
would recommend it very 
highly. But I think personal in- 
terest should be considered." 

Ford notes more terminals 
would be required if every 
student needed to use them. 
He suggests terminals be in- 
stalled in the dorms to provide 
24 hour access so students 
could work at "non- 
traditional times." According 
to Ford, this is already in the 
planning stages. 

Stachow likes this idea. He 
said, "For convenience sake 
for anyone working on ter- 
minals — be it math, science 
or English — terminals 
available 24 hours, especially 
in the dorms, would be very 

Markowicz said the 
program's expansion depends 
on the total campus computer 
situation. He emphasized the 
need for a campus coordinator 
so that all departments that 
buy a computer get the same

provement in the way students

amounts of $1000, $1500 and 
$2000 per year. 

Requirements for high 
school seniors to take the 
exam include a score of at least 
1000 points on SAT's, or a 
position in the top 20 percent 
of the high school senior class. 

Brown said, "The scholar- 
ships act as a reinforcement to 
the admissions office," as the 
exam often allows the student 
a second look at the college. 
"The students meet faculty 
and students and also get a 
look at the facilities," he said. 
About 60 percent of the 
students who take the exam 
enroll at LVC. 

F. Allen Rutherford, Jr., 
Acting President of LVC, 
spoke at the Feb. 11 examina- 
tions, giving the students and 
parents a chance to meet 
college officials face-to-face, 
according to Brown. The 
college also provides a finan- 
cial aid question-and-answer 
session which is helpful to 
both parents and students. 

The scholarship previously 
offered students a percentage 
of their tuition each year, 
ranging from 25 percent to full 
tuition. The class of '84 was 
the last class to receive percen- 
tages. Brown said the change 
to the new program was due to 
budget changes. 

According to Brown, Peter- 
son seems committed to the 
scholarship program, but may 
make some changes in the 
program in the future. 
However, giving this financial 
aid to students who may not 
necessarily need it often causes 
discussion among officials in 
higher education. Even so, 
Brown said, many larger 
colleges are switching to this 
type of scholarships. 

Brown emphasized that 
LVC will continue to give the 
scholarships in the coming 
years. A second group of 
students and parents will be on 
campus on Feb. 25, for 
examinations and a look at the

play, directed by Lauri 
McKannan, you would expect 
the three actors — Mark 
Mason, Missy Hoey and Bruce 
Hoffman, to create really 
powerful performances. 

Guess again. Hoey as Fran- 
ces, the old woman, was 
physically half-way convin- 

cing. That's more than I can 
say for Mason, the old man. 
And neither of the two could 
hold their squeaky voices 
throughout the show. They 
started out fine, but then 
they'd forget and remember it 
ten minutes later. 

Bruce Hoffman's stage ex- 
perience showed through as 
the fireman, but he really 

looked ill at ease next to 
novice actors Hoey and 
Mason. They really didn't fit 
well together, and the audien- 
ce knew it. I myself had a hard 
time taking them seriously. 
However, I did enjoy the one- 
liners that Mason snapped off.

Fire Alarm System — 

The fire alarm system in 
Funkhouser is still being fixed. 

Zearfoss says over the 
Christmas vacation, someone 
pulled the fire alarm and it 
rang an undetermined amount 
of time before it was 

The fire alarm had been 
examined before the vacation 
started and that it was in good 
working order, according to 
Zearfoss, but the continuous 
ringing wore it out. Zearfoss 
says the faulty wiring and 
detectors have been fixed, but 
a problem remains with the 
control panel. 

The panel is in the Depar- 
tment of Physics, where Zear- 
foss hopes they will be able to 
determine which diode in the 
panel is defective. 

Mary Green's Gas — 

Zearfoss says he was first 
alerted to the problem in Mary 
Green when he was informed 
that first floor residents 
smelled gas. 

Zearfoss explains that Mary 
Green has a dual firing boiler 
which can run on oil or gas. 
When it runs on gas the 
exhaust is vented directly to 
the atmosphere. 

Zearfoss says under certain 
atmospheric conditions the gas 
does not dissipate readily and 
seeps in the first floor win- 

At present, the vent is at the 
east end of the building, but 
Zearfoss plans to reroute the 
vent to the west end, where 
there are fewer windows, or to 
the roof.

Report on Valley Grads of '83 Released 

by David Frye 

David Evans, Director of 
the Office of Career Planning 
and Placement, releases a 
Graduating Class Report each 
year. In the December 15, 
1983 report, he summarizes 
the fortunes of the class of 
1983, and compares them with 
the previous two classes. 

Of the 218 members of last 
year's class, 62.4 percent 
found employment in their 
area of study, representing an 
increase over the other two 
classes. The figures were 54.0 
percent for 1981 and 56.3 per- 
cent for 1982. Increasingly, 
graduates from Lebanon 
Valley College are finding em- 

ployment in their chosen 

The percentage of those 
holding temporary jobs and 
seeking career-related employ- 
ment fell to 13.3 percent from 
16.4 percent and 13.6 percent 
in 1981 and 1982 respectively. 
Again, the trend bodes in- 
creasingly well for LVC 

The number of graduates 
pursuing advanced study, 
however, has declined in 
recent years. In 1981, 14.2 
percent of the graduates pur- 
sued further schooling. This 
dropped to 13.1 percent in 
1982 and to only 9.2 percent in 


The figures for those still 
seeking employment are 
mixed. The class of 1983 has 
6.4 percent in this category, 
while 8.5 percent of 1982's 
class and only 1.8 percent of 
1981 's class fall in this group. 
Of course, the members of the 
class of 1981 have had an ad- 
ditional year to look for jobs. 

The placement summary 
also includes a grab-bag of 
classifications called 
Miscellaneous. It includes 
employment in other areas, 
traveling, volunteer, part- 
time, or not seeking em- 
ployment at this time. Of the 

class of 1981, 6.2 percent fall 
somewhere in this group. This 
rose to 7.0 percent for the next 
year, and dropped to 4.6 per- 
cent in 1983. 

Individual departments met 
with varying degrees of success 
in the placement of graduates. 
The following majors have a 
placement of 75 percent or 
better, in the number em- 
ployed in area of study, for the 
class of 1983 only: 
Accounting 79% 
Actuarial Science 100% 
Business Administration 76% 
Computer Science 100% 
Medical Technology 100% 
Nursing 85% 

Operations Research 100% 
Social Service 75% 
Sociology 100% 
The report also includes an 
individual listing of each 
member of the class of 1983, 
including name and vocation. 
Present students could use this 
information to see what op- 
portunities are available to 
graduates in their respective

Coach Foster Sets Tone 
For Men's Basketball 

by Julie Sealander 

"I feel you can win every 
game you go into. Whenever I 
change that attitude, I'll get 
out of coaching," said men's 
basketball coach, Gordon 
Foster, the man whose deter- 
mination and positive attitude 
have brought a season of ex- 
citing ball play to LVC. The 
team has had a turn-around 
and a good season, with the 
added accomplishment of 
beating all but one other team 
in the MAC. 

No stranger to success, 
Foster coached for many years 
at Lykens and Upper Dauphin 
High Schools, his teams 
bringing in seventeen league 
titles and five district cham- 
pionships. "It got to be kind 
of stale, knowing we would 
win the championship every 
year," he said. "This is a lot 
more of a challenge." 

Foster certainly was 
challenged when he came to 
LVC two years ago, facing a 
team with a disappointing 
record. However, with a com- 
bination of determination, 
hard work and some good 
recruiting, he has turned them 

into a team to be reckoned 
with. "There are no secrets," 
he said. "It's simply hard 
work on the part of the 
coaches and players." 

His unflagging optimism 
undoubtedly plays a large part 
in his success also. "My 
philosophy is that you can win 
them all. My wife tells me that 
'Rome wasn't built in a day,' 
but I enter every game with the 
attitude that we can win." 

Foster has worked for over 
twenty years as a teacher of 
world cultures and sociology, 
which helps him in his 
coaching. "I feel that a coach 
is a teacher," he said. He 
spends time with the players 
off the court as well as on. "I 
tell them that 'The coach's 
door is always open.' I've 
spent a lot of time with the 
players one on one, discussing 
personal and academic 
problems. I feel that the team 
works much better as a group 
now, which is important." 

Foster's experience as a 
world cultures teacher is 
reflected in his innovative 
future plans for the team. May 

1985 has been tentatively set as 
the date for the team's two 
week tour of Europe. They 
will travel to several countries, 
playing various club teams 
along the way. Foster sees this 
as a good recruiting technique, 
as well as a "cultural experien- 
ce" for the players. 

His own interests lie along 
the same lines. Every year for 
the past several, he has led a 
group of students and adults 
on a trip to a foreign country. 
"We've been to Europe ten 
times, Latin America, 
Australia, and this year we 
hope to spend two weeks in 
Norway, Sweden and Den- 

Foster's other interests in- 
clude reading, swimming, 
music ("all kinds") and 
baseball, which he played for 
four years on the varsity team 
at Elizabethtown College. 
Even so, "My first loves are 
teaching and basketball." 
Foster seems to have in- 
tegrated the two in a successful 
style of coaching that has 
brought a spirit of unity to the 
team he works with. 

Men's Basketball Team 
Tough on Home Court 

by Tracy Wenger 

With an overall home 
record of 7-3 and an MAC 
record of 5-6, LVC basketball 
coach Gordon Foster states 
that he is "pleased with the 
team, which proved that we're 
a good ball club by having a 
good season and a record to

An important victory 
boosted LVC's spirits when

at home on February 15. In 
the 83-79 game, Siebecker 
scored 20 points and had four 
steals. Whitman added nine 
rebounds and Zlogar had an 
impressive ten assists. 

The team lost to F&M in the 
closing game of the season, 98- 
87. Senior Bobby Johnston led 
scoring with 24 points. Kreigh 
rebounded eight times and 
Zlogar tallied nine assists. 

"In the games that could 
have gone either way, our ball 
club pushed forward to 
win — doing a fine job all the 
time," says Coach Foster. 
Foster says that there were a 

lot a pluses throughout the 
season, including good 
recruiting, exciting games, and 
the "fantastic work" of Co- 
captains Johnston and 

Other high points were 
revealed in Kreigh 's overall 
statistics. He netted a total of 
450 points, with a 19.6 per 
game average. He pulled down 
202 rebounds, blocked 47 
shots, and had 45 steals. Also, 
he maintained a .475 shooting 

Siebecker, who shot .521 
from the field, contributed a 
team-high 63 steals and also 
tallied 65 assists. 

Zlogar led the team with an 
impressive 149 assists, while 
Johnston shot well (.479) from 
the field. 

Whitman followed Kreigh 
in rebounds with 150 and 
blocked shots with 15. Doug 
Emanuel shot .542 from the 
field, while Jim Deer led the 
team from the foul line, 
shooting .825. 

Perhaps the best part of the 
season is that 15 out of 17 
players will return next year to 
spur the Dutchmen on to an 
even better season.

The Dutchmen wrestling

losing to Gettysburg. 

On February 8, the team 
trounced Albright, 54-6, in a 
decisive victory in Lynch

Four months ago, ten 
Lebanon Valley College 
women gathered on a basket- 
ball court and began prac- 
ticing toward a goal — the 
Middle Atlantic Conference 
playoffs. Now after eighteen 
games, that goal, due to a 65- 
53 loss to Dickinson, has been 
put on the back burner, at 
least for this year. 

The quest for the goal 
began Nov. 29, against 
Franklin and Marshall. The 
game, although a loss, exten- 
ded to overtime play. 

The team went on to win 
three of their next five games, 
and closed out the fall 
semester with a loss to Messiah 
on Dec. 10. During the month 
of January, the Dutchgals 
won three of their five games, 
beating York, Johns Hopkins 
and Franklin and Marshall 

For the Dutchgals and 
coach James Smith, February 
started out on a bright note, 
but went downhill from then 
on. The 64-62 overtime victory 
against Muhlenberg sent the 
team's overall record to 8-5 
and in league play, 3-2. After 
the win at Muhlenberg, the 
Dutchgals fell into a five game 
losing streak before the impor- 
tant game at Dickinson. The 
losing streak cost the team a 
very important commodity 
— confidence. "You sense that 
something might go wrong, and 
it usually does. Winning builds 
confidence," said Smith. 

Finally, on Feb. 18, the 
Dutchgals traveled to Dickin- 

We've got it —

son. The team went into the 
game hoping to earn a berth in 
the Middle Atlantic playoffs 
and snap their losing streak. 
At the end of the first half, 
Dickinson led 35-24, opening 
up the fast break to beat the 
pressuring Dutchgals, 65-53. 
Not only did the Dutchgals 
lose a chance at the MAC 
playoffs, they lost Freshman 
Penny Hamilton with a chip- 
ped bone. 

Smith reflects on the season 
with a positive and pleased 
note. "It was our best season; 
I am pleased very much." 
When asked about his most 
outstanding game, Smith 
recalls the 80-72 loss to Get- 
tysburg. "The team played 
well against a nationally 
ranked team. The loss made us 
5-5." Smith also mentions the 
94-68 loss to Susquehanna as a 
memorable game even though 
it was a loss. 

As far as position changes 
for next year goes, Smith wan- 
ts to obtain a center about 5- 
10, forward and guard to 
round out the team. He 
reasons that "the league is get- 
ting better." Smith is also 
hoping to change the three 
guard offense to a two guard 
offense. The other change that 
the team can expect for next 
year is respect. "The other 
teams will look forward to 
playing us; they will no longer 
take us for a dance," ex- 
plained Smith. 

Goal for next year, accor- 
ding to Smith? The MAC 
playoffs, of course.

College A t tacks A ttrition 

by Julie Sealander 

The attrition rate for the 
1983-84 school year is not 
significantly higher than it has 
been in recent years. Although 
LVC lost fifty-nine students 
from last semester, the at- 
trition rate falls well below the 
national average, and rates 
lower than many similar 
schools in the area, according 
to Dean of Students George 
Marquette, who recently com- 
pleted an indepth, ten-year 
study on LVC's attrition rate. 

There are many reasons that 
a student leaves school (other 
than graduation), ranging 
from academic to social to 
personal. Most often cited are 
academic reasons. From 1971 
to 1982, the percentage of 
transfer students for academic 
reasons jumped from 32 per- 
cent to 58 percent. Marquette 
sees this as partially resulting 
from increased demand by 

students for specialized majors 
that LVC does not offer, such 
as engineering. 

However, LVC has made 
many efforts to halt the at- 
trition rate. The "academic 
early alert," a new system 
whereby a student who is 
having academic difficulty, 
brings such students to the at- 
tention of Marquette, the 
professor and the student's 
advisor. A conference is then 
scheduled between the four. 

Another program, a one- 
credit Reading and Study skills 
course, developed to help 
students avoid academic dif- 
ficulty, helps students with the 
basics, and is in its third suc- 
cessful year. 

Dean of Admissions 
Gregory Stanson says a sum- 
mer course taken after high 
school graduation also helps 
beginning freshmen. The op- 

tion of taking a twelve credit 

course-load is also offered to 
first semester students. 

An affiliation with Thomas 
Jefferson Hospital, a recent 
addition to the curriculum, 
has resulted in an increased 
number of LVC students in 
the allied health field, par- 
ticularly drawing students in 
physical and occupational 

Marquette says he plans to 
publish his results in the near 
future, adding "The highest 
attrition rate we ever had was 
in 1975, and we have gone 
down since then." 

Stanson said, "As long as 
we continue to change and 
meet the needs of the students, 
we will not have a problem. A 
college must have that com- 
mittment that every student 
who enrolls will graduate. 
Here at LVC I believe that we

Library: A Shut and Open Case 

Hosteller J 

by Amy Hosteller 

On Feb. 28, from 5 to 7 
p.m., Gossard Memorial 
Library was closed: lights tur- 
ned off, books unavailable to 
researching students, com- 
puter room closed, a quiet 
Place to study shut down. 

The library was closed those 
[wo short hours due to a 
'misunderstanding over 
financial aid," said William E. 
Hough III, head librarian. 
Hough said two of his student 
workers on Work/Study, who 
work 10-12 hours/week, ex- 
ceeded their alloted amount by 
m ore than $100. Christine 
Koterba, director of financial 
ai d, informed Hough on Feb. 
^ 8 that those students could no 
longer work. 

Hough said the library 
depends on student workers 
and that there are 30 hours 
when only students staff the 
library. Each year, Hough 
requests his student staff, 
which included five students at 
10-12 hours/week for this 

"I never had any problem," 
he said. "I always got my 
students... but, last year, with 
the changes in financial aid, 
the library was caught. This 
year, I was limited in the num- 
ber of students. I scheduled 
the first semester on the basis 
that somehow, we'd get the 

According to Hough, he 
scheduled in "good faith." He 

said, "Since I was operating 
the library on a long-term 
agreement of five students 
working 10-12 hours a week, I 
had no option but to close it." 

Since Hough joined the 
staff in 1970, he has increased 
the library hours from 69 
hours/week to 90 hours/week, 
which is more than the 80 
hours/week necessary for ac- 
crediting standards, according 
to Dean of Faculty Richard 
Reed. Although the hours in- 
creased, the number of pro- 
fessional staff and secretarial 
staff has decreased with the 
added number of student 

After he received the notice 
from Koterba, Hough 

discussed the situation with 
Reed. Reed gave the per- 
mission to close the library 
from 5 to 7 p.m. every day, 
while Hough continued to ex- 
plore other options. 

"I expected there would be 
a lot of unhappiness," Hough 
commented. "I myself was 
unhappy and upset with the 

A student discovered the 
closed library the same day, 
and, said Hough, spoke to the 
"first two people out of the 
Administration Building, who 
happened to be Dr. Peterson 
and Mr. Rutherford," 
president of LVC and chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees, 
respectively. The student 

questionned the closing of the 
library, and Peterson and 
Rutherford responded by 
calling Reed. 

Reed called Hough, and the 
library was reopened. "I 
agreed to open it while we ex- 
plored ways of remedying the 
student-help situation so we 
would have enough to keep it 
open," said Hough. In the 
meanwhile, the library staff 
has worked the 5 to 7 shift and 
student worker schedules have 
been changed to "fill in the 
holes," Hough said. 

Hough and Koterba worked 
together to re-evaluate the 
library student staff's finan- 
cial aid packages, and Koterba

Letters to 
the Editor 


Dear Editor: 

'The Right Stuff" used to 
be one of the major reasons I 
even picked up your 
newspaper. Yet, this column 
has, in the last two issues, 
given me reason to give up The 
Quad altogether. 

In the first issue of the 
semester, Mr. Johansson en- 
dorsed George McGovern for 
the Presidency of the United 
States. How can any serious 
human being actually support 
a man who promised $1000 to 
every man, woman, and child 
in the country in 1972, and yet 
promises to decrease the 
federal deficit in 1984. 

In your latest issue, Mr. 
Johansson implied that people 
who watch Dr. Who or Star 
Trek are socially unaware. (I 
confirmed this in conversation 
with him on the evening of 
Feb. 23). Now, I watch both 
of these shows, and the fact 
that I am writing this belies his 
contention. I will be the first 
to admit to avoiding civil 
disobedience for the piddling 
concerns of Mr. Johansson, 
but letters of complaint are 
quite sufficient for such mat- 
ters. Save civil disobedience 
for real problems. 

Pete Johansson's forte is 
humor. Let (or keep) him at 
what he does best; he does not 
handle serious matters well.

Dear Editor: 

I would like to comment on 
something I have always 
known existed, but which I 
just recently experienced: the 
syndrome of "I'm ok; you're 
not." If this statement were to 
be stated more clearly, it 
would read: "I'm not ok; you 
are. Therefore, I have to in-

Recruiting Starts at Home 

In a sense, each of us is a Founder. Every day, we con- 
tribute to the quality and reality of Lebanon Valley College. 
Sometimes, however, that quality of education is overlooked, 
not only by prospective students, but by ourselves. How can 
we expect LVC to attract students if we ourselves are not? 

No one on this campus can relax if LVC is to survive and 
prosper. Everyone in the college community, from president 
to professor, from staff to students, must cooperate in the 
revitalized recruiting/retaining effort if it is to succeed. 

No one can rest on his laurels. Some professors spend 
hours helping students, acting as mentors in both academic 
and personal matters; we must recognize and support their ef- 
forts. Some professors spend their free time on campus, 
meeting with students; we must emphasize and demonstrate 
the individual attention a student receives at LVC. Some 
students bring recognition and honors to the college through 
individual projects; we must praise them. Some departments 
perform a vital role in a student's liberal arts education; we 
must not allow them to stultify. Some offices and staff mem- 
bers continue to show their support throughout a student's 
entire collegiate career; we must encourage them. Some ad- 
ministrative offices show varying degrees of bad manners and 
unconcern about the college's image; we must change their at- 

No one can say, "It's not time to push the panic button." 
Perhaps not "panic," but certainly "full alert." Every mem- 
ber of the LVC community, friends and alumni included, 
must be continually aware of the synergistic role he plays in 
the multi-colored mosaic called Lebanon Valley College. The 
cafeteria worker who sees a prospective student uncertain of 
the "laws of the line," the staff member answering a 
student's questions about financial aid, the complaining 
student at lunch who wants to go to graduate school, the 
professor helping a student with difficulties — all must be on 
"full alert," aware of the quality of service they give and 

Many departments are well-known for their committment 
to excellence in education. Others, some growing, some 
stagnant, thrive on mediocrity. What all of us — not just ad- 
ministrators, faculty or students alone — must do is raise the 
quality of those departments and their students to the level of 
the others and recognize accomplishments of departments 
and students alike. 

There's an old saying, "In order for others to like you, you 
must first learn to like yourself." LVC must learn to like it- 
self. Only then will we attract students with that special 
"Valley" quality. 

jfeRight stuff- ioi Ways to Pay 

That's what it's going to cost to come back to Lebanon 
Valley College next year. Gosharoo, little buckos, that's a lot 
of eggplant. Wherever will it come from? Relax. Uncle Pete 
has a few ideas. 

$8760. Let's see... 

Holding down more than two jobs for the summer is out of 
the question, unless you've discovered something in 
Chemistry Lab that the Food and Drug Administration would 
like to know about. Two jobs might do it, but finding one is 
hard enough. Besides, who wants to spend a summer that 

One nifty way to pay for college is armed robbery. No, I'm 
not condoning violence, but it is an alternative that must be 
considered. Two things could happen. One, you could get 
away with it, in which case you would pay for your tuition in 
tens and twenties. Or, two, you could get caught, in which 
case the government is required to provide inmates with 
educational opportunities free of charge. The key here is that 
you must be armed; if you get paroled, you really blow it 
from both ends of the deal. 

Another method is to blackmail someone. This can be dif- 
ficult, because you must choose someone with lots of money 
that you know something embarassing about. One way to do 
this is to get a job in a cheap motel and take pictures of 
anyone named "Smith" who walks in. If you're lucky, this in 
itself would be enough; you shouldn't have to actually catch 
them in the act (although that might be good for a laugh), just 
a photo of that person with someone other than his wife in a 

myself look good." This at- 
titude is evident in all walks of 
life, but especially evident in

m%r ial - Tuesday's 11th Hour 

What occupies vour time everv TumHo,, n.™ n — u ~e *\ *i * L ? ... • 

What occupies your time every Tuesday at 11:00 a m f 
Catching up on needed sleep, reading The New York Times 
doing homework, or attending the current "LVC Presen- 
ts...?" Chances are you do anything but the last choice 

This is a sad state of affairs. What is the solution? Merely 
mandatory attendance of religious services led only to people 
sleeping in Miller Chapel and squared poorly with this 
college's secularized "church affiliation." At present, a spif- 
fy logo and month-long topics hold the college community's 
interest sporadically at best. 

So the solution could be to combine these two old solutions 
in a meaningful, rewarding, and compulsory way. Let's 
require two credits of College Colloquium for graduation 
from Lebanon Valley College. 

This is the plan for the course. Each semester will offer 
four three- week segments on the following general topics: 
Current National Issues, Current World Issues, Current 
Scientific Advances, and Current Artistic Advances. 

Every student must attend all of the lectures in one segment 
of his choosing, such that all four segments are covered twice 
in his four-year career. 
In addition, each student must attend at least one lecture in 

each of the other segments each semester, for a total of six 
lectures per semester out of the twelve offered. Of course, 
students may attend more frequently; this is the minimum. 

So much for the attendance; here is the value and meaning 
in the program. Each student must write an essay evaluating 
the three lectures in the chosen segment and submit it to a 
designated professor. Given our ten-to-one student-faculty 
ratio, each professor will have ten essays per semester to 
grade on a pass/fail basis, awarding one-quarter credit (two 
credits over four years). 

These essays will help students to practice evaluating 
critically the complex problems facing us in society today. 
The program, as a whole, works toward achieving some of 
the goals in the college's Statement of Purpose, as well as 
rejuvenating the Chapel-Convocation a.k.a. "LVC Presen- 
ts..." series. 

After the lecture each Tuesday, students, professors, and 
administrators could discuss the topics raised, while enjoying 
a sit-down luncheon in the dining hall. The lectures would 
serve as a hotbed for intellectual and communal growth. 

What old problems need are new ideas for new solutions. 
Let's give this one a try. 

The Vinyl Verdict — 

by Diana Carey 

Dan Fogelberg, long known for his over-embellished sen 
timentality, is finally beginning to open up to a wider range of 
expression on his latest album, Windows and Walls. 

While some of today's computerized music is too imper- 
sonal to relate to, Fogelberg sometimes has the opposite 
problem of being too sentimental to be believable. With his 
sweet, folk-type voice, Fogelberg has always had a tendency 
to create songs that drip with emotion. In addition, he 
delights in a smooth, over-produced sound, complete with 
elaborate orchestration. On Windows and Walls, however, he 
shows some discretion and lets more of his real talent shine 

Lyrically, Fogelberg is at his best with specific examples of 
reality rather than high-flown emotions. On the title track he 
expresses the boredom and confinement of an aging widow. 
The plodding beat illustrates the slow passage of time in her 
quiet, empty house. In "Loving Cup," to demonstrate the 
ironies of love, he effectively uses the image of wives waiting 
up for husbands they know won't come home. 

Nevertheless, Fogelberg has a little trouble getting the per- 
ceptive lyrics and fresh melodies together in the same song. 
"The Language of Love," the single, captures listeners with 
its sharp, clean melody and strong beat, but the lyrics are 
forgettable. "Gone Too Far" suffers from the same malady. 
The predictable lyrics make it just another "we're destroying 
the earth" song. The topic is valid, but it lacks concrete 

Letter to the Editor — 

Fogelberg Succeeds 
w/o Sentimentality 

examples to move the listener. Musically, however, he suc- 
ceeds in imparting a refreshing anger. His voice loses most of 
its artificial, sugar-sweet quality to express real emotion. Two 
fuzz guitars lash out against each other in the opening, but the 
song ends with empty, synthesized wind, perfectly illustrating 
what the lyrics fail to say. 

The album finally comes together lyrically and musically in 
"Tucson, Arizona (Gazette)." It paints a vivid picture of a 
young man trapped in a menial job, supporting his family af- 
ter the death of his alcoholic father. The lyrics reflect his 
feelings of isolation: 

"Tony keeps his Chevy 

Like a virgin locked in his garage 

He brings it out at midnight 

And cruises down the empty boulevards. " 
By the end of the song, his frustration drives him to murder 
and suicide, leaving the neighbors to wonder what happened. 
All this is complimented by a quietly dramatic Spanish 
melody executed on classical guitar. The strings are not too 
obtrusive, and a synthesizer adds eerie notes as the climax ap- 
proaches. The sound of a curious crowd at the end gives the 
song an almost visual effect. 

With songs like this, Fogelberg proves he has the ability to 
write something more than pop ballads. If he makes the ef- 
fort, he can have more than commercial success. He can have 
artistic success as well. 

Humor vs. Politics 

Dear Editor: 

Several political comments 
Published in The Quad in the 
last two issues warrant an 
alternative viewpoint. 

The comments directed 
against President Reagan and 
compliments toward the likes 
°f George McGovern and Ted 
Kennedy have been simply 
jjisproven by the realities of 
ufe in our times and the 
^ e agan Administration's 
record of accomplishment for 
trie good of the nation as a 
w hole. America is back and 
standing tall. ..thanks to 
Resident Reagan. 

O n the subject of civil 
disobediance, it would appear 

that today's students are not 
so much apathetic as they are 
sensible. Today's student with 
a complaint is more inclined to 
approach change through 
more effective, conventional 

Until recently, Mr. Johan- 
sspn's column was a subject of 
humor, and this has been its 
appeal to the student body. 
May I suggest that he stick to 
humor and stay away from the 
subject of politics. If this is 
not suitable, I suggest giving 
equal column space to the con- 
servative viewpoint, and/or 
change the name of the 
column to "The LEFT Stuff."

Editorial Response: 

Mr. Scott astutely sees the 
need to offer an "alternative 
viewpoint" to the admittedly 
liberal assessments of The 
Quad's editors. We thank him 
for his desire to debate. 

We cannot, on the basis of 
broad generalizations of 
reality, glibly judge the worth 1 
of anyone, be he Reagan or 
Kennedy. It may be that 
"America is back and stan- 
ding tall, " but we need to ask 
ourselves, "Upon whose backs 
is she standing... thanks to 

President Reagan ? ' ' 

To imply that the prac- 
titioner of civil disobedience is 
not "sensible" terribly insults 
the great moral leaders of 
history. Jesus, Martin Luther, 
Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin 
Luther King Jr., for example, 
provided the most profound 
insights into the human spirit 
through non-violent 
revolution. For normal redress 
of grievances, petition is suf- 
ficient. Sometimes, however, 
great change requires altering 
or abolishing the established 
powers. This is our greatest 
freedom and gravest respon-

The LVC Admissions Office 
has not made any "dramatic" 
changes in recruiting strategies 
due to the $1000 increase in 
tuition, although some 
strategies will be tightened up, 
according to William J. Brown 
Jr., associate dean of ad- 
missions of LVC. 

The tuition increase will not 
affect incoming students as 
much as current students since 
LVC's costs are equivalent or 
lower to other private schools 
of its size. Brown said in- 
coming students are com- 
paring LVC's $8760 to schools 
costing as much as $9500 and 
up. LVC will help incoming 
students, he added, by an in- 
crease in the amount of funds 
available from financial aid. 

The admissions office plans 
to change marketing and ad- 
vertising strategies. An adver- 
tising campaign was recently 
altered to include some bigger 
publications in such places as 
Washington, D.C., Baltimore, 
New York and Hartford, 

The addition of a new ad- 
missions counselor, Wendy 
Willard, will allow counselors 
to visit more high schools of- 
fering more recruiting 
programs, according to 
Brown. Willard has started a 
newsletter for accepted 
students to stay in touch with 
the college. 

The monthly letter includes 
highlights of college activities, 
LVC sports and deadlines for 
financial aid so the students 
can get a feel for college life 
before they begin next 
semester. The letter invites 
students to these activities and 
other opportunities LVC of- 
fers, such as the chance to 
spend a day and/or night on 
campus in the Mission: 
Hospitable program. 

The staff will increase their 
recruiting area as much as 
possible, according to Brown. 
However, the staff will recruit 
more heavily in its current 
recruiting areas, which include 
New York, Connecticut, New 
Jersey and western Pen- 
nsylvania, the admissions 

With all these changes, ad- 
missions requirements will not 
be lowered but "tightened 
up." Brown said LVC never 
had cut-off points for grade 
point averages of SAT scores. 

Instead, he said, the college 
prefers to look at applicants 
on a more personal level, em- 
phasizing high school records. 
In fact, Brown stressed, a 
monthly report by the Ad- 
missions Office showed a 
rejection rate higher than in 
past years.

Biology Department to Receive Electron Microscopes 

by Lisa Meyer 

A 15-year dream has finally 
come true for the biology 
department. Thanks to a 
$136,000 grant from the 
Whitaker Foundation, the 
department can now purchase 
two electron microscopes, said 
Dr. Allan Wolfe, biology 
professor and technical ad- 
visor for the proposal. 

They hope to receive at least 
part of the equipment by May, 
Wolfe said. He expects to 
spend the summer preparing 
for full-scale operation in Fall 

The department plans to 
buy both a transmission and a 
scanning electon microscope. 
The transmission microscope 
works on the same principle as 
an ordinary light microscope, 
Wolfe explained, transmitting 
electrons through an extremely 
thin specimen. Areas of 
greater penetration are 
recorded as light patches, 
while areas of less penetration 
appear as dark patches. Its ad- 
vantage is good magnification 
of a small specimen. 

A scanning microscope, 
however, provides a good sur- 
face view. Electrons bounce 
off a specimen coated with a 
heavy metal and the angle at 
which they bounce is recorded. 
This type of microscope allows 
for greater depth perception. 

Plans also include an in- 
strument called a microtome, 
a "machine which produces 
slices needed for the tran- 
smission microscope." It can 
cut a one inch specimen into 
254,000 slices 1000 angstroms 

Wolfe called it a "miscon- 
ception" to think of the elec- 
tron microscope as "com- 
plicated and requiring special 
training. The (specimen) 
preparation is what required 
special training and practice." 
The transmission scope 
requires training to use the 
ultramicrotome and is, 
therefore, more difficult to 

The microscopes will affect 
teaching since "it will give 
students a chance to see things 
that they previously could only 
look at in pictures in books," 
Wolfe said, adding, "It will 
also give students a chance to 
learn another lab skill." Until 
now, students had to go to 
Hershey Medical Center to see 
an electron microscope and 
could get no hands-on ex- 

He also expects the science 
departments to work together 
more. '"There is no reason 
they could not be used in con- 
junction with physics or

many students in the last ten 
years could have furthered 
their research if they had had 
access to an electron 

Electron microscopes are 
invaluable to the department's 
faculty research. "We in the 
biology department feel it is 
important for faculty to keep 
up with current information. 
The best way to do that is to 
do research," Wolfe said. He 
added that having the 
microscopes on campus will 
make it easier for several 
professors to collaborate on 

Community programs will 
also take advantage of the 
equipment. The department 
hopes to involve high school 
students through the Youth 

Scholars program and to hold 
workshops for high school 
teachers. Even elementary 
school students could be in- 
troduced to electron 
microscope techniques. Other 
possibilities include adult 
education programs and in- 
dustrial demonstrations. 

Wolfe emphasized that 
these are only suggestions for 
the future. No actual plans are 
currently in the works. 

The biology department and 
the development office 
worked together in writing the

commented Hough. "Not 
much, but at this time, it's 
enough to see us through the 
semester. What Koterba did 
now will solve all the problems 
for staffing the library." 

Reed said he and Hough 
"thought the problem was 
headed off" last semester. He 
stressed that Hough was 
"operating in good faith." 

"We do very well in having 
our library open," Reed said, 


adding that most universities 
have their libraries open 100 
hours/ week. "The dinner time 
may be a time to have it 
open," he said, calling it a 
"balancing act" between cost 
and service. 

"Thanks to Hough, his 
staff and Koterba, and the co- 
operation involved, we were 
able to solve the problem. We 
never intended to keep it 
closed during those hours, but 
Mr. Hough didn't have any 
other solution," said Reed.

Combines Vision and Practicality 

President Peterson Takes Office 

by Amy Hostetler 

A new man sits behind the 
walnut desk in the President's 
Office; a man full of visions 
and practicalities which, he 
hopes, will make LVC a bet- 
ter, stronger college. 

A philosophy/government 
major from Yale University, 
Arthur L. Peterson has en- 
thusiasm for his week-old job, 
enthusiasm which will 
probably continue throughout 
his term of service to LVC. 

Peterson is a "people" per- 
son who enjoys talking to 
others much more, he says, 
than doing the required 
paperwork. He took the job at 
LVC because "I suspect that 
we all have values and we all 
like to leave something behind 
us. I felt I could come into a 
situation and contribute my 
training and experience to 
make LVC a more vital 

Peterson describes his inter- 
pretation of the college 
presidency as not pushing or 
pulling, but in terms of 
leading. "I want to help inter- 
pret the college to the com- 
munity, to give it direction and 
viability. A president can

teaching," he said, "but the 
presidency offers a unique op- 
portunity to help an entire 
campus. I'll be able to leave an 
imprint of a positive nature." 

Classical political thinkers 
left an "imprint of a positive 
nature" on Peterson as a 
student which has continued 
throughout his multi-faceted 

careers. He said he looks to 
Kant, Plato and Locke for 

"something that helps guide 
me to find direction." The 
classics, he explained, "are as 
important to him as any." 

The political world influen- 
ces his choice in contemporary 
authors as well. His in- 
volvement in leadership 
development led him to read

Megatrends, two books Peter- 
son says "reflect what con-

temporary leaders in all 
vocations are thinking and 
what their choices are." In 
addition, he has read many of 
the recent glut of memoirs of 
political leaders; "It's in- 
teresting to see what they say 
about their years, their life." 

Fiction he enjoys, but "I 
don't read just for the sake of 
reading. I try to learn from my 
reading." His family, 
however, encourages him to 
read novels. He did read 
Watership Down recently, and 
views it as a portrayal of 
society, but so beautifully 

To escape from his world of 
politics, Peterson likes to 
"face the elements" by sailing 
and horse-back riding. "It's 
working with nature to move 
forward," he explained. 

While working with 
businesspeople in leadership 
workshops, Peterson often 
asks them to describe them- 
selves. How does he think of 

"I'm a person strongly in- 
fluenced by my up- 
bringing... My parents stressed 

service as giving meaning to 
life. I think service is the key 
to understanding... I just like 
people. I'm most comfortable 
in social situations... gregar- 
ious. ..I like to consider 
seriously the philosophical and 
ethical sides of topics, that 
dimension is important to 
me... I like to contemplate the 
eternal verities of life." 

To Peterson, perserverance 
is an essential part of life. He 
spoke of his father, who was 
an inventor, and he added he 
too would like to invent 
something useful. Perhaps 
here at LVC, Peterson can 
"invent" the type of college he

On Tour 

by Lorraine Englert 

While most LVC students 
will be relaxing during the all- 
too-few days of Spring Break, 
the LVC Concert Choir will be 
busy performing on the road. 

Concert Choir has been 
touring the United States 
regionally since 1936. This 
year, tour starts on Wed- 
nesday, March 7 and ends 
Thursday, March 14. The 
Choir gave two pre-tour per- 
formances in February and 
will give a campus concert on 
Sunday, March 18 at 8 p.m. in 
Lutz Hall. 

On tour, the choir performs 
daily, giving nine performan- 
ces. Dr. Pierce Getz, professor 
of organ and conductor of 
Concert Choir, comments on 
this strenuous schedule, 
noting, "Fatigue plays a 
greater danger than anything 
else. If we lose a student 
through fatigue, we are facing 
all kinds of problems." 

Getz laments the loss of time 
for Spring Break this year. 
"When we had the oppor- 
tunity, as we had in recent 
years, to have rest and 
relaxation at the beginning of 
Spring Break, this was a tur- 
ning point." Nevertheless, he 
is very optimistic about the 
success of this tour. 

Getz gives much credit to 
Robert Unger, director of 
alumni services and business 
manager for concert choir. 
"Having this kind of assistan- 
ce is one of the most important 
factors. We jointly devise a 
general itinerary. He locates 
most of the areas, takes care 
of details and all arrangements 
with the sponsor." Freed from 
many of the outside concerns 
connected with tour, Getz can 
concentrate on choir training. 

As for choir members them- 
selves, Getz says, "They 
always take a great deal of 
responsibility." Students form 
various committees which are 
responsible for a partcular 
function while on tour. Junior 
Jim Hollister, student business 
manager, oversees these ac- 
tivities. Other officers of Con- 
cert Choir include Holly 
Hanawalt, president, and Jill 
Herman, secretary. 

"We sing mainly sacred 
music (on tour) because our 
concerts are given within chur-

promising "much lighter 
fare" for the LV Spring Arts 
Festival, April 27-29. 

Versatility plays a major 
role in the repertoire. Not only 
is there a vast range of dif- 
ferent types of music perfor- 
med by the group but the 

languages they sing include 
Latin, German, and Spanish 
as well as English. 
Concert Choir is an "all 

college function open to any 
qualified student of the 

college," says Getz. He sees 
the choir as a "means of 
bringing the college before the 
public in a wider and wider 
aspect." People who host 

students while the choir is on 
tour often write to compliment 
the student and the group. 
This public response is part of 
the reward of going on tour.

Sorrentino Pleads: 
Return Equipment 

Photo by Dave Ferruzza 

Cool Evening— Delphian sisters and pledges light a small fire against the elements at the cool 
conclusion to a recent warm day. 

by Tracy Wenger 

Athletic director Lou 
Sorrentino has expressed two 
concerns with the use and 
return of LVC issue equip- 
ment, uniforms, and practice 
sweats. "The equipment, and 
especially the LVC issue 
sweats, should be used or 
worn at varsity practice and 
games," says Sorrentino. 
"The clothes are not issued to 
be used in intramurals or to be 
worn to class." 

Sorrentino's second concern 
is that athletes are not respon- 
sibly returning equipment and 
clothes at the end of their 
respective seasons. "We don't 
have enough sweats for the 
spring sports teams because 
people from the fall sports are 
still holding them," says 

Because of this problem, 
Sorrentino says that over 
$1,000 worth of bills will be 
sent to student athletes within 
weeks. "It's not that we want 
to punish the athletes," says 
Sorrentino. "But we want our 
equipment back. It's im- 
possible to build up a supply 
of clothing and equipment 
when athletes don't return it." 
He added that athletes will not 
get school checks, grades, 
transcripts, or placement until 
they have paid their bills. "We 
would much rather have the 
equipment than the money," 
says Sorrentino, "because 
with rising costs, this $1,000 
worth of bills will not nearly 
replace the equipment that was 
not returned."

"The indoor season was en- 
couraging," says Reed, "ex- 
cept we had several athletes 
who did not participate in win- 
ter." Hibshman set a new 
LVC record in the 800 meter 
run at Dickinson with a time 
of 2:02.52. 

In the MAC Meet, McKellar 
also set a new LVC record in 
the 60 yard dash qualifying 
heats with a time of 6.28 
seconds. He went on to place 
second in that event, while 
Miles placed sixth with a time 
of 6.62. McKellar also placed 
second in the 300 yard dash 
with a time of 33.29 seconds. 
Miles again followed, placing 
with a time of 35.3. 

Bob Rosenberger placed 
first in the shotput event with 
a "good effort" of 43 '10 3 / 4 ". 

In distance events, Hibsh- 
man ran a 2:20 minute 1000

Trumbull secured fifth place 
in the mile with a time of 4:28. 

The four-lap relay team of

The men's tennis team will 
compete this year as a club 
under the direction of Curt 
Keene. Returning starters in- 
clude Tony Myers, Rich 
Brightenstein, Joe Lamberto, 
and Keene. Dave Miller, a 
freshman, is expected to add 
depth to the team. 

The team is presently 
looking for an adult advisor to 
accompany the team to four 
away matches. Any interested 
faculty or staff members 
should contact Curt Keene. 


With a little luck it will all 
work out, as the old saying 
goes. Coming off last year's 3- 
17 record, Coach Ned Smith 
believes that things will work 
out for the Valley baseball 

"We have a chance to win a 
lot of games if we just have 
luck, something we haven't 
had for a few years," he said. 

The team, which Smith con- 
siders the best yet, although 
small in numbers, consists of 
Bob Johnston, John Parsons, 
Vaughn Robins, John Feaster, 
John Kiefel, Dave Williams, 
Rich Bradley, Bob Faker, Jeff

Lenker, and Chris Roberts. Of 
Roberts, Petrofes says, "If he 
decides to play and make a 100 
percent commitment to the 
team, we will improve." 
Petrofes adds that with those 
four leading the team, "We 
could be pretty tough." 

Kings College, Scranton, 
Franklin and Marshall, and 
Wilkes, who Petrofes says has 
had its ups and owns, will 
prove the stiffest opposition 
for the Dutchmen. 

The team opens its season at 
home on March 29 against 
Dickinson College. 


Led by co-captains Rich 
Underwood and Bob Mc- 
Callion, the LVC men's 
lacrosse team will face a tough 
early season. Returning with 
one year of experience in the 
goal, Underwood should be 
"more consistent" this year 
according to head coach Bruce 
Correll. McCallion, a four- 
year letterman on defense, will 
be aided by outstanding 
defender Joe Portelese. 

Freshmen George Gray and 
Dave Ludwig will see con- 
siderable defensive action. The 
loss of Bob Carson to knee 
surgery presents a problem for 
the defensive unit, as he will be 
hard to replace. 

Last year's leading scorer 
Mike Rusen will be counted on 
heavily this year in the mid- 
field, as will face-off specialist 
Rich Miller. Senior Doc 
Toutman and returners Tom 
Boyle and Paul Russen will 
strengthen the midfield. Two 
new players, Jed Duryea and 
Mark Clifford will complete 
the midfield. 

"Our attack should be our 
strength," says Correll. Jason 
Sbraecia and John Gebhardt 
will be the leading forces of 
the attack, with help from 
Scott Cousin and the Rusen 

After a scrimmage with 
State University of New 
York — Stoneybrook at home 
on March 17, the men open 
their season again at home 
against Drew University on 
March 21. The early season 
presents four teams, Swarth- 
more, Franklin and Marshall, 
Gettysburg, and Western 
Maryland, all of which are 
named in the top 15.

Honors Program Changed 

by Amy Hosteller 

In an attempt to align the 
Honors Program with the new 
General Education 
requirements, LVC's faculty 
has accepted revisions to the 
three-year-old program. 

"I view the Honors 
Program as organic, 
developing and changing... not 
as permanently decreed or writ 
in stone," said the director of 
the program, Dr. Leon 
Markowicz, professor of 

At the faculty businessj 
meeting held March 8, the 
faculty approved revisions as 
proposed by Markowicz and 
the Honors committee to 
accommodate a change in 
educational philosophy of 
faculty members and the 
Honors committee. The 
program does not equal Gen. 
Ed. requirements "hour for 
hour," but, as in the areas of 
natural sciences and 
mathematical sciences, many 
Honors requirements match 
those of Gen. Ed. 

After the new Gen. Ed. 
requirements were approved 
last semester, the Honors 
committee combined their 
recommendations and 
examined the relationship 
between the program and Gen. 
Ed. requirements. Markowicz 
said some significant revisions 
w ere suggested by current 
Honors students as 
current and former 

Maj or revisions 
Program, which "seeks to 
sharpen critical and analytical 
linking," deal with structure 
r ather than intent and 
Purpose. The program 

well as 

to the 

currently consists of four core 
courses (at five credits each), 
two Honors seminars (at three 
credits each), and two 
independent studies (at three 
credits each). 

In its new structure, the 
program will consist of 
Honors Communications, a 
three credit course; three 
Honors core courses, six 
credits each; two Honors 
seminars, three credits each; 
and one independent study, 
three credits. 

Suggested by Honors 
students over the past two 
years, the Honors 
Communications course 
received "absolutely full sup- 
port, especially from former 
and current Honors instruc- 
tors," Markowicz said. The 
purpose of the com- 
munications course is to "help 
students write and speak clear, 
grammatical, and articulate 
English; to help students listen 
and read well; to help students 
search information sources 
and apply these sources in an 
ethical way; and to help 
students acquire the ability to 
analyze and to draw con- 

Core course HCC 203, 
"The Nature and Impact of 
Science," has been dropped 
and the order of core courses 
changed. Instead, Honors will 
require two one-semester 
laboratory sciences in biology, 
chemistry, psychology and 
physics, at science major level. 
"There is flexibility and an 
array of choice," said 
Markowicz. "There are op- 
tions here. The science 
requirement should not 
penalize the student." 

Markowicz said laboratory 

work, which is "so important 
to science," constitutes an 
essential learning experience, 
although "the history of 
science and philosophy of 
science can still be done in a 
seminar in the junior or 
senior year." 

The new order of core cour- 
ses is "The Individual and 
Society," "Human Existence 
and Transcendence" and 
"Human Creativity." 

Main questions at the 
faculty business meeting were: 
"Why drop 'The Nature and 
Impact of Science' course?

N. College May Close 

by Tracy Wenger 

According to the Dean of 
Students Office, North 
College residence hall (Clio 
house) is not definitely being 
closed next year. "There is the 
possibility that the college will 
have to decide if it is ap- 
propriate to keep the two 
small residence halls (North 
College and Centre Hall) 
open, or to close one," says 
Dean Rosemary Yuhas. 

She emphasizes that no 
decision has been made at this 
time to close either house. 
"But we do want to be 
prepared," she says, "in case 
that decision is made. We 
don't want it to come as a 
shock in July." Preparation is 
the reason for the double- 
room sign-ups for the present 
residents of Clio house. Under 
this plan, they are required to 
sign up for a room in the 

larger dorms if the house is 
closed. "We had double sign- 
up for Saylor Hall for several 
years before it was finally 
closed," says Yuhas. She adds 
the administration always 
discusses whether to keep the 
small residence halls open 
prior to each semester. 

The entire issue rests on the 
student population next 
semester. If the student 
population deceases 
significantly, both Clio house 
and Centre Hall may be 
closed. "We don't know how 
many students to expect next 
year," says Yuhas. "New 
student deposits aren't due un- 
til later, so a decision can't be 
made until about the middle of 

Because of the student at- 
trition rate between the two 
semesters this year, the trend is 
causing the administration to 

be prepared to "make any 
cost-efficient decision." 

The reason for the rumored 
decrease in the number of 
single-doubles is that if a 
house is closed, it will mean at 
least 16 more residents in the 
women's dorms. That alone 
accounts for 16 less single- 
doubles. Another reason for 
decreasing single-doubles is 
LVC's obligation to use large 
dorms to fullest capacity, 
which has not been done this 
semester because of student 
drop-off and larger number of 

The houses will be the first 
to be closed because their 
utilities and repairs are expen- 
sive to maintain. "We want to 
try to fulfill the students 
needs," says Yuhas, "but we 
have to wait and see what the 
numbers say."

Editorial — 

Books and Blinders 

by Amy Hosteller 

A few years ago, LVC students used to wear t-shirts from 
"Annville University," in droll recognition that LVC is not 
well-known to the general public. Now, those same students 
would wear t-shirts reading, "Where's LVC?" 

Driving through Annville on Route 422, one may (or may 
not) see two very small signs announcing the location of 
Lebanon Valley College. A stranger to the Lebanon Valley 
area probably would not notice the "official" college entran- 
ce, Bollinger Plaza, or the College Relations building beside 
it. People do not realize they are passing a place of learning 
until they reach the outskirts of Annville and see the signs 
along the highway. 

In reality, there is no "official" college entrance, only 
Sheridan Ave. and College Ave. From either entrance, the 
college itself is tucked away, hidden from public view. The 
only college building on Rt. 422 is the College Relations 
building, certainly not an imposing, collegiate, or obvious 

The medieval attitude of hiding the college from the 
public's sight, effectively separating it from Annville, 
manifests itself not only in the "advertising" of the college's 
location or the placement of college buildings, but also in the 
extent of LVC's involvement with the community it sup- 
posedly serves. 

Rarely does the college make a cohesive attempt to become 

involved with the Lebanon Valley community. When we do 
try to reach out into the community, it's usually for con- 
vocations, concerts or recitals. LV Spring Arts Festival is an 
anomaly on the LVC campus; it's one of the few times when 
the relationship between LVC and the community equally 
benefits both groups involved. 

Today marks the first day of the annual Helping Hands 
weekend. This year, all proceeds will go to the Ronald Mc- 
Donald House in Hershey. This type of productive behavior 
provokes a positive response in the community, moreso than 
the destructive behavior seen at groves. 

Where is LVC? President Arthur Peterson has mentioned, 
several times, his pragmatic intent to revitalize and renew 
college-community ties with businesses in order to gain 
monetary (and other) support. LVC should not be an ivory 
castle or a fortified fortress of learning. LVC has a lot to of- 
fer the community, and the community has a lot to offer 

Commitment is the key. Empty gestures by administrators 
and college staff members are just that — empty of any kind 
of philanthropic meaning or commitment. Dance-a-thons 
without student support fail; convocations without an 
audience do likewise. LVC campus community members 
must take off their blinders and realize that there is an equally 
important world outside. 

The Vinyl 
Verdict — 

by Diana Carey 

Into the Gap by the Thompson Twins is a wild blend of 
musical elements from the Far East, Africa, and even the 
American folk scene. In addition, their deliciously rich sound 
is backed with a refreshing philosophy of optimism. 

The trio (Tom Bailey, Alannah Currie and Joe Leeway), 
has carefully selected instruments to create a densely layered, 
eclectic sound. They use everything from harmonica to 
congas to synthesizers, all topped off with Bailey's smooth, 
deep vocals. Currie's positive lyrics complete the picture and 
make the album enjoyable on all levels. 

Their Top-20 hit, "Hold Me Now," is a perfect example of 
the group's mixture of realism, romance and musical 
innovation. The lyrics are both romantic and believable. It is 
a song about two people "looking for some perfect world we 
know we'll never find." They find that real love begins when 
they can accept the problems in their relationship and still 
want to stay together. The melody is fully developed. A 
rumbling bass line moves beneath synthesized harp flourishes 
and the liquid tones of the xylophone. All of this is 
punctuated by riveting percussion. 

"You Take Me Up" is another optimistic love song. It is an 
affirmation of love, even though life may be reduced to 
monotonous factory work. The group manages to combine 

Twins" Visit The Gap 

reggae and American folk music, using a Jamaican beat, an 
echoing chorus and a harmonica. The energy of this unusual 
combination makes the song even more positive and 

The group is also concerned with human limitations and 
potentials. "Sister of Mercy" deals with a housewife's 
feelings of emptiness and frustration. The questioning 
melody of "Who Can Stop the Rain?" talks about mankind's 
inability to put an end to pain. The pulsing beat adds to a 
sense of urgency for an answer to the question of how pain 
can be stopped. 

One of the most satisfying songs on the album is "The 
Gap." Musically it conjures images of sheiks and Arabian 
belly dancers. It claps and clicks, surging and writhing 
exotically. Meanwhile, the lyrics argue against man's creation 
of boundaries between countries and his fellow man. 
"They say, 'East is East, West is West, 
Two different colors on the map. ' 
We say, 'Break the line, chew the fat, 
Keep moving out into the gap. ' " 

Whether or not the album gets the airplay it deserves, the 
Thompson Twins have made music that is both accessible and 
thought-provoking. They successfully travel "into the gap" 
and explore some exciting musical possibilities. 

Letter to the Editor— Pledging Policies 

Honors com. 

from p. 1 

Should Honors students take a 
natural science on the major 
level? and Should Honors 
students get six credits for five 
classroom hours?" 
Markowicz explained. 

"My impression was that 
most of the scientists — not all, 
most — voted for the two lab 
courses because of the lab ex- 
perience," said Markowicz. 
"My personal view is that it 
would be ideal to have 
philosophy and history of 
science. At this point, LVC 
cannot do this." Other sources 
indicate the difficulty of 
scheduling a science professor 
to instruct the HCC 203 course 
as a major reason for this 
revision . 

Honors students must also 
take a foreign language on the 
intermediate level or above, an 
integrated course in 
mathematics and computers 
(also included in the new Gen. 
Ed. requirements), and two 
courses in physical education. 
"If a student does the major 
work and the Honors Program 
as defined, that's all they 
need," Markowicz said. 

"Because the Honors 
Program is not offering HCC 
203, current Honors students 
will take two one-semester lab 
courses in science," said 
Markowicz, adding, "I en- 
courage them to take labs on 
a major level, but they do not 
have to." 

Markowicz called the 
Honors Program "a growing, 
developing and improving 
program" which is reflected in 
the accepted revisions. The 
growth of the program may, 
he hopes, attract more studen- 
ts. "The impression I get, both 
from talking to Honors 
students and Honors instruc- 
tors and faculty as a whole, is 
that these changes will make 
the program more attractive to 
excellent students." 

Dear Editor, 

In response to the letter 
concerning pledging: 

First we feel that Miss 
Detwiler is slightly confused as 
to right and wrong. Are you 
saying in the statement "I'm 
not OK, you are," that if we in 
APO do not condone stealing 
and ask a pledge not to 
continue pledging, we are 
wrong? If the pledge in 
question had waited to obtain 
a copy of the scavenger hunt 
he would have been instructed 
not to steal and would have 
noticed that all "obtain" 
questions also required written 

Anything done to a pledge 
during pledging is under strict 

scrutiny of the dean and the 
pledge has the option to with- 
draw from pledging at any 
time. We realize that one 
might then say that the 
brothers would harbor ill 
feelings towards the ex-pledge 
but we harbor no feelings of 
ill-will toward anyone that did 
not complete pledging for 
whatever reason. 

As to the statement about 
the kinds of people the frater- 
nities are turning out, we 
suggest that fraternities and 
sororities have been around 
for a long time and the frater- 
nities and sororities of years 
gone by were much harder on 
pledges. Another point you 
might want to consider is the 

number of distinguished 
citizens that were once in a 
fraternity or sorority. 

In closing we would like you 
to consider this. The act that 
the pledge was caught 
comitting (sic) is a crime in the 
United States. Before judging 
us as a frat you should turn 
your judgements towards the 
pledge. We're reminded of the 
3rd commandment, "Thou 
shalt not steal." 

We would like to say that we 
feel very upset that you are 
reacting this way, yet we really 
do not hold any resentment of 
any kind towards the pledge

The Right Stuff — 

by Pete Johansson 

Mr. Potato Head 

Tuesday was the last straw. A baked potato is hardly my 
idea of a nutritious lunch. The same goes for dinners that are 
90 percent starch, and vegetables with half the flavor and 
nutrients cooked out of them. There is no way around it This 
man Michaels must be stopped, before his insidious plan to 
sap our strength progresses too far. Something has to be 

Maybe I'm overreacting, but look what we've had to put up 
with. Cheap menu substitutions made at the last minute 
Prospective students dining on wonderful things, while we get 
industrial swill. And why does every group that comes in here 
have to kick us out of the West Dining Hall? Let them pick up 
bag lunches. We pay the bucks, we ought to be able to sit 
down in a dining hall and eat in peace. And while we're on the 
subject of money, I think I pay food service enough to buy 
some kind of meat once a day. Starch dinners stink. 

What to do? Well, hold on. I have a few suggestions for 
Mr. Michaels, and one for the students. First Mr. Michaels: 

1) If you insist on serving Pizza Burgers Sunday nights, at 
least do us all the favor of filling the chocolate milk dispenser 
with Kaopectate. Those things are killers, and they sure do 
wreck an evening's studying. While we're on that, I have yet 
to eat a consistently brown spare rib here. Green and blue 
streaks in meat are hardly appetizing. 

2) About half the food we eat here is orange. Try a dif- 
ferent color. 

3) DON'T COOK THE VEGETABLES. At all. Put them 
in the steamers raw 45 minutes before dinner, and they'll be 

4) Don't serve fish twice in one day, like you did last Friday. 
A lot of us don't like fish, and recycling any kind of entree 

like that is the pits. 

5) Greek Night was a change of pace, but how many 
students are clamoring for Greek food? I didn't even 
recognize half the stuff. If you want to have a specialty night, 
at least serve one familiar dish. 

6) People who don't have classes until 9:30 or 10:00 
shouldn't have to get out of bed at 7:30 just to be able to eat 
breakfast. Expand the hours. 

7) When you feed lunch to prospective students, open both 
dining halls to everyone, and let them eat what we eat with us. 
They have a right to know what they're getting into. 

8) Stroll over to the College Center desk and find out how 
many resident students we have here. Multiply that number 
(it's around 800) by 1.5. The answer is how many entrees you 
should make in an evening (multiply by 2 for something like 
hamburgers) so you don't run out of food after a half hour. 

9) Motivate your employees. There is no reason why people 
in the kitchen and dishroom should do a good job if they 
don't enjoy working for the dining service. 

10) Spend one week walking through the lines with us and 
eating the food you give us, and see how you like it. 

As promised, here, fellow students, is a suggestion for you: 
If you don't like what you've been served, let Mr. Michaels 
know about it. Take your plate into his office and leave it on 
his desk. Face down, if you wish. 

Don't let this go. If you agree, write to The Quad and let us 
and Mr. Michaels know. If you don't agree, let me know 
where I'm wrong. The important thing is, if you're a full-time 
non-commuting student, you don't have any options. You 
have to buy the food. Make sure you're getting your money's 

Cor r ell Modifies Registration 

by Maria Montesano 

LVC Registrar's Office will 
computerize its facilities to 
improve efficiency of 
registration and keeping of 
students' records with less red 
tape, according to Bruce S. 
Correll, LVC's new Registrar. 

This semester, pre- 
registration will run as usual, 
said Correll, He said that over 
the summer, the Registrar's 
Office will enter each student's 
pre-registration materials into 
the computer. Each student 
will be mailed registration 
materials, including a copyn 
of the fall schedule, before 
September. He said fall 
registration will then be 
limited and any changes may 
be made at that time. 

In the future, the computer 
system will reduce the registra- 
tion process. Pre-registration 
Wl H become registration, 
Worrell said, eliminating half 
of the process. Fall and spring 
re gistration periods will not be 

required for all students but 
will instead be "big drop/add 
days." Repetitive processes, 
such as filling out statistical 
cards and schedule cards, will 
be done by computer, accor- 
ding to Correll. Students will 
only update their records once 
a semester. Correll added the 
drop/add period at the begin- 
ning of each semester will 
probably be extended one 

The computer will hold all 
student records, such as 
rosters, grades and GPA's, ac- 
cording to Correll. The 
system, which will be built into 
LVC's current computer 
system, will be available to the 
Admission's Office, 
Registrar's Office, Business 
Office and Alumni and 
Development Office. Correll 
said in the future the push of 
one button will allow infor- 
mation to go between these of-

That's the basic salad. Chop- 
ped celery, carrots, or any 
other vegetable can be added. 
Enjoy the picnic and watch 
out for those ants. 

fall semester will occur April 
3-12, 1984. Correll said 
students should come to pre- 
registration better prepared 
than in past years. He said 
each student should have 
alternative courses and sec- 
tions picked out in advance in 
case certain courses have been 
closed. Then, according to 
Correll, students will have in- 
put into what changes may be 
made on their schedules. 

Correll said it is very impor- 
tant that next year's seniors 
pre-register on their scheduled 
days (April 3-4); after these 
days, they will lose their 
seniority. Also, Correll added 
that no one will be allowed to 
pre-register before his/her 
class' scheduled days. 

Before the decision to swit- 
ch to the new computer 
system, LVC visited two local 
colleges in the area currently 
using the same system. Correll 
said after registration at these 
colleges, about 85 percent of 
the student schedules are in 
their final form. "It will take a 
couple of registration periods 
before LVC perfects the 
system to such a point," said 


Three new general education 
courses have been added to 
LVC's curriculum in addition 
to changes in general 
requirements, according to 

Bruce S. Correll, Registrar. 

The three courses are as 

General Ed. 

Econ 100 - Introduction to 

G.E. 120 - General Educa- 
tion Course in History 

G.E. 140 -Culture and 
Human Behavior 

Special Topics- 

Correll listed the following 
Special Topic courses for the 
fall semester of 1984: 
Psychology - Career 

Education - Measurement 

and Evaluation in the 

Physics - Optics 
Music - Improvisation for 

the Organist 
Foreign Language - French 

Romanticism and 

Foreign Language - Modern- 
ism in Spain and 

Latin America 

Also, according to Correll, 
advanced courses in biology 
and chemistry will be avail- 
able although the specific 
course material has not yet 
been determined. 

Materials for pre- 
registration will be available 
from the Registrar's Office af- 
ter March 30, 1984. 

Guys & Dolls 

by Lisa Meyer 

Tickets for Guys and Dolls 
are selling "better than for any 
other production at this 
point," according to Director 
Dean Sauder. 

Sauder attributes this in- 
crease to the dinner theater 
format which is being used. 
Although summer productions 
have often used this format, 
Guy and Dolls is the first LVC 
production to use it during the 
school year. 

It was chosen, said Sauder, 
in an attempt to attract a 
bigger, different crowd. "We 
are trying to pull in the sum- 
mer crowd," he said. It seems 
to be working, since the 
Saturday night shows are 
already sold out. 

The plot concerns the love 
affair between Sky Masterson 
(Mark Wagner), a bigtime 
gambler, and Miss Sara Brown 
(Jackie Newcomer), the leader 
of the Save-A-Soul Mission. 
As the result of a bet with 
Nathan Detroit (Erik Enters), 
Masterson tries to take Brown 
to Havana, Cuba, with him. 
In the process, she falls in love

Heisey emphasized the most

that it fits so well with the

"Hello, I'm..."— Carolyn Dickerson and Sondra Watson dial for dollars in the Alumni 

by Lorraine Englert 

The Alumni Phonathon, an 
annual event organized by the 
Development Office, reaches 
out to touch alumni wallets 
March 19- April 5. Last year, 
the goal was $50,000; instead, 
they raised $74,000, a 
"remarkable success," said 
Assistant Director of Develop- 
ment, Joe Wengyn. 

Wengyn says 34 percent of 
alumni contribute money, 
which is "very good compared 
to the national standard." 
However, he also says each 
person gives an average of $78, 
which is lower than the 
national average of $97. "One 
out of every three alumnus 
donates," says Wengyn, who 
admits that he, a 1982 
graduate of LVC, contributes 
money each year. 

The phonathon runs for 
three weeks, four nights a 
week, Monday through Thur- 
sday. Phones are set up in the 
College Center. Calling starts 
at 7:30 and ends at 9:30 p.m., 

with ten LVC students 
working each night. 

There are benefits for those 
students who take part. Free 
food and drinks are available 
to calling students, and 
throughout the evening, 
various prizes can be won as 
well. Members of an 
organization can raise money 
for the group by having five 
members sign up to work at 
the same time. Also, when 
calling is completed for the 
evening, students can make a 
free phone call to anywhere in 
the United States. 

Prizes given out to callers 
during the phonathon vary 
from free milkshakes to free 
haircuts. Student interns visit 
area businesses from Hershey 
to Lebanon and convince them 
to contribute their goods and

Frats Lend Hands 

by Julie Sealander 

Beginning on March 29 and 
continuing through April 1, 
Lebanon Valley Mall will be 
the scene of the annual 
Helping Hands Weekend. 
Staffed and organized by 
Gamma Sigma Sigma and 
Alpha Phi Omega, the goal of 
the weekend is to raise money 
for a Ronald McDonald 
House being constructed in 

The weekend will feature a 
number of various activities, 
including twenty different 
game booths, refreshment 
stands, live entertainment and 
a dunking booth. An auction, 
fashion show and raffle will 
also be held. 

The one-hundred and ten 
student workers, headed by 
co-chairpersons Lynn Cor- 
nelius and Karl Gerlott, have 
been planning for several 
months for the event. 

Each year, profits from the 
weekend are contributed to a 

different charity. Last year, 
over three thousand dollars 
was donated to the American 
Cancer Society. In 1982, the 
proceeds were given to the 
Special Olympics of Lebanon, 
and in 1981, profits went to 
the Lebanon County Area 
Agency on Aging. 

This year's profits will help 
to fund building of a Ronald 
McDonald House, located 
near the Hershey Medical Cen- 
ter. When completed, it will 
provide housing for families 
of children with serious 
illnesses, who would otherwise 
have to sleep in hospital 
lounges or area hotels. A 
home-like atmosphere is 
provided during a time of

Hart Offers "New Ideas" Frats Lend Hands 

by Pete Johansson 

Despite a brush with Three 
Mile Island activists, and a 
protest by Lebanon Valley 
College Republicans, 
Colorado Senator and 
Democratic Presidential Can- 
didate Gary Hart was greeted 
enthusiastically by hundreds of 
people filling the state capitol 
rotunda in Harrisburg last 

The thrust of Sen. Hart's 
speech was an attack on the 
current Administration's 
economic and foreign policies. 
Hart said the upcoming elec- 
tion is "one of the most im- 
portant in this nation's 
history. The issue before this 
country is not whether it will 
move left or right... but the 
issue is this country's future 
versus its past." 

Hart spoke of an 
"economic blueprint" for the 
country that included 
retraining workers to meet 
new demands in industry. Part 
of this blueprint is "the 
creation of the best education 
and training system in the 
world." Hart said he would 
create that by reinstituting 
many of the student aid 
programs under attack by the 
current Administration, 
paying for these programs by 
cancelling the MX missile and 
B-l bomber programs. 

"We must... increase oppor- 
tunities for higher education," 
said Hart. "If Mr. Reagan 
thinks education is too expen- 
sive, wait till he finds out how 
much ignornace costs," he 
said. "I want to see the day in 
the 1980's when the United 
States in the eyes of the world 
is not the world's arsenal, but 
the world's grainery and the 
world's university." 

Hart continued his 
economic blueprint by calling 

for production of food in the 
country to be done primarily 
by the three to four million 
farming families, rather than 
the major corporations. Hart 
would accomplish this by 
lowering interest rates and 
creating a tiered system of 
foreign price supports to those 
in middle and lower incomes. 
Sen. Hart addressed a group 

"America must 
decide whether 
to move forward 
or standstill. "

of people advocating the 
closing of the TMI plant, 
telling them he would not 
restart TMI without con- 
sulting the community and 
without a committment from 
plant management to safety 
standards. This was met with 
mixed reaction from the 

Hart advocated a foreign 
policy of diplomacy, rather 
than military presence. Hart 
saw the enemy of third world 
nations as poverty rather than 
Communism. In calling for a 
foreign policy of economic 
aid, Hart said, "We must have 
a foreign policy in the 1980's 
that gives us something to be 
proud of other than just our 

Hart plans his major swing 
through Pennsylvania the 
week before and the week of 
the April 10th Pennsylvania 
primary. An aide to Sen. Hart 
said he would be concentrating 
on "the rank and file" of 
organized labor in Penn- 
sylvania. Hart strategists 
hope the blue collar vote will 
be favorable to the Colorado 

Another aide said the 
Senator would "go after" the 
black vote in Pennsylvania, 
but indicated Hart would be 
pressing his strengths else- 
where. Asked if they thought 
Hart would carry the state, 
aides replied they were coun- 
ting on a win. "It's a crucial 
state for the Senator." 

When Hart emerged from 
the building, he was met by 
members of LVC's College 
Republicans organization, 
holding a large "Reagan for 
President" banner. Led by 
Chairman Mark Scott, the 
group was met with scattered 
jeers from the crowd outside.

mark. "Things have been 
going very smoothly so far, 
and we are very optimistic," 
comments Assistant Chairper- 
son Leslye Paillex. "It's a 
great opportunity for service 
to the community and a lot of 
fun too," adds Cornelius. 

Although the total cost of 
building a fourteen-bedroom 
house is over $200,000, 
organizer Karl Gerlott feels 
"any contribution we can 
make will make a difference," 
saying, "it is a carnival of sor- 
ts, and should be a lot of fun 
for everyone who comes." 

The combination of games, 
entertainment and fun, all for 
a very worthy cause, should 
add up to a successful 
weekend, said Cornelius.

New Valley Publication

An old college publication 
will have a new look this fall, 
thanks to the work of Dawn

formation services, and Mary 
B. Williams, director of publi- 

The L VC Journal, 
previously printed in a twelve- 
page tabloid format, will next 
month become The Valley, a 
24-page magazine. "The 
idea, "said Humphrey, editor 
of the magazine, "is to make 
the publication more readable, 
more upbeat." 

L VC Journal was basically a 
record of campus events. 
Published quarterly, The 
Valley will be more feature- 
oriented, including profiles of 
students, faculty, staff and 
alumni of the college. The 
only recognizable feature of 
the new magazine will be the 
"Class Notes" section, a 
regular feature of the LVC

The new publication is 
largely due to response from a 
questionaire in the Winter 
1984 issue of the Journal. 
Readers were asked about 
their likes and dislikes of the 
Journal, and their response, 
said Humphrey, "played a 
pretty large part." When work 
on the first issue began last 
fall, a graphic designer was 
employed to make the 
magazine more appealing. 
Free-lance writers and 
photographers will also be 
used in future issues. 

There will be two versions 
of each issue of The Valley. 
The first will be a 24-page 
magazine mailed out to alum- 
ni, with an eight-page section 
of Class Notes and features on 
alumni and alumni activities. 
The second version will be the 
same magazine without the 
eight-page alumni section. 
This will go out to friends of 
the college. 

Humphrey's role as editor 
gives her control over the con- 
tent of the magazine. 
Williams, producing the 
magazine, is responsible for 
co-ordinating various aspects 
of the magazine's production, 
including working with 
designers and publishers. "It's 
really a team effort, "Hum- 
phrey explained. 

The first issue of The Valley 
will be available in mid-April.

State Unveils New Loan Program 

Nearly 60,000 college 
students, including many LVC 
students, may benefit from 
$300 million in bonds 
negotiated by the Pen- 
nsylvania Higher Education 
Assistance Agency (PHEAA) 
for additional student loans 

starting in 
academic year. 

Gov. Dick 
who unveiled 

the 1984-85 

the program 
March 26, said it was designed 
to help students not eligible 
for assistance under present 
federal regulations. State of- 
ficials said students whose 
families earn more than the 
federal government's $30,000 
a year ceiling will be eligible 
for the program. 

This is the first time bonds 
have been issued for student 

loans in the commonwealth, 
said Thornburgh. 

The new program will make 
available loans of up to $5,500 
oer school year with an aver- 
age interest rate of 10 percent 
and a repayment period exten- 
ding up to 10 years. After a 
four year period of borrowing 
$5,500 per year, a student 
would owe at least $28,078. 
For more information, see 
Christine Koterba, director of 
financial aid. 

"The new loans will mean a 
help for many families that 
have been in doubt as to how 
to finance higher education 
since these restrictions (on the 
Guaranteed Student Loan 
programs) were imposed," 
said Rep. James. J. A. Gal-

"This continues our

Some of the bonds proceeds 
from the interest could be used 
for loans to graduate students, 
especially those in the health 
professions, and some for 
distribution to individual 
college student loan programs. 

"The board and bond 
committee was very specific 
that the staff were not to get

money," PHEAA executive 
director Kenneth R. Reeher

or default of the borrower, 
but it does not require federal 
approval because it does not

Reeher said it was possible 
that a family earning $80,000 
with two children in college 
could qualify for the program. 

To avoid setting a cutoff 
dollar figure, Reeher said 
PHEAA will consider the 
family size, number of parents 
working, number of children 
in college and tuitions. 

"In Pennsylvania, there is a 
large portion enrolled in full- 
charge private colleges which 
have tuitions between $12,000 
and $13,000," Reeher said. 
"We want to try to also

The men's two-on-two 
basketball tournament, under 
the direction of Commissioner 
Phillip Billings, has returned 
for its third year of com- 
petitive play. Although the 
tournament has consistently 
fielded 16 teams, Billings says, 
"The students seem to be 
talking more about it, even 
months ahead of time. The 
teams this year are the 
strongest overall that I have 
ever seen." Billings himself is 
not competing this year 
because of an injury. 

When asked why he started 
the tourney, Billings says, "I 
like playing two-on-two, and I 
thought the men might like 
something different from the 
usual five-on-five, full-court 
thing after a whole fall and 
winter of it." He hopes it will 
offer the chance to be 
recognized as champions, the 
chance to play games in which 
students cannot relax, and the 
chance to play games that 
connect to each other and 
potentially lead somewhere. 

Saying it was also an excuse 
to keep playing a game he 
loves against good com- 
petition, Billings notes, "After 
the official season is over, 
players tend to drift away onto 
the ball fields and tracks and 
wherever else students go in 
the spring... the library?" 

Although no trophy has 
been awarded in the past, 
Billings says there may be a 
goofy bronze trophy and a 
party this year.

possession after each basket 
and play must be resumed at 
the foul line after an out-of- 
bounds ball or a foul.

Foster. "Darkness was 
definitely a factor in their 
(Susquehanna's) last at bat." 

Foster says that considering 
this was the team's first full- 
field play because of the 
weather, the team did a good 
job. "We have a solid infield, 
and Penny Hamilton's hitting 
is also a strength." Foster also 
cites the excellent pitching of 
Denise Mastovich and Dicksie 

"Although we are a first- 
year intercollegiate team with 
many new players," says 
Coach Foster, "we will win 
some games." 

"We've gotten the shots, 
but we just haven't scored," 
says Coach Bruce Correll of

should have beaten Drew," he 
says. "We definitely out-shot 

Led by Jason Sbraccia's two 
goals and John Gebhardt's 
single score, the team "rode 
well," maintaining play n the 
LVC offensive zone. Mike 
Rusen recorded three assists 
for the LVC goals. 

The team's second loss came 
against Franklin and Mar- 

shall, 19-2, on March 24. 
Scoring came from Mike 
Rusen and Sbraccia. 

"Despite the losses, we are 
doing some things very well," 
says Correll, "and we should 
be a good team shortly." 
Correll names Joe Portelese, 
who has been playing "ex- 
tremely well," as one of the 
strengths, while also saying 
that the team has been clearing 
particularly well. According to 
Correll, the weakness seems to 
be the extra-man offense

If OCS were easy, it couldn't do the job. It wouldn't bring out 
the leader in you, or help you discover what you have inside. 

But when you finish and graduate as a commissioned officer

Men Set 

In the last indoor meet of 
the season, LVC ran against 
Muhlenberg, setting two new 
fieldhouse records. In the 60- 
yard dash, Kenny McKellar 
placed first with a record- 
setting 6.44 seconds. 

In the 440 yard run, John 
Hibshman and Jim Reilly tied 
for first at 55.0 seconds, which 
also set a new record. 

Lyle Trumbull placed first 
in the 880 with a time of 2:03.9

placed third with a time of 

LVC took the top three 
places in the mile run, as Hib-

4:34 minutes; Trumbull placed 
second, 4:34; and Chris 
Jasman took third, 4:41 . 

In the two mile run, Jasman 
placed first with a time of 
10:43.57 minutes and Trum- 
bull placed second with 
11:1 1.37 minutes. 

In the 4x2 lap relay, the

LVC Boasts of Balloons 

by Maria Montesano 

LVC campus can expect 
anywhere from 3,000 to 
10,000 people at the First An- 
nual Yesteryear Festival to be 
held on April 14 from 11 a.m. 
to 5 p.m., said Harold Haslett, 
student intern with the ac- 
tivities and business offices. 

The day will include a Hot 
Air Balloon Rally by Great 
Adventure Balloon Club of 
Lancaster, according to 
Cheryl Reihl, director of 
student activities. Dr. Arthur 
L. Peterson, President of LVC, 
will serve as Balloon Meister 
and rides in the race can be 
scheduled in the student ac- 
tivities office ahead of time at 
a cost of $85. There will also 
be tether line rides for $10 per 
person, weather permitting, as 
winds can damage the bal- 

Reihl said an Antique Auto 
Show may draw as many as 
250 cars to the festival and a 

contest will be held for the 
"People's Choice" car. Prizes 
will be given to car owners. 

According to Reihl, 22 of 
LVC's various clubs will host 
food and game booths at Ar- 
nold Field. Two outside 
booths include a Klondike 
Bars booth whose profits will 
benefit the Ronald McDonald 
House in Hershey, and the 
Great Adventure Balloon 
Club, who will sell old posters 
and homemade items in return 
for the booth. The balloon 
club is donating the LVC 
balloon to the event, accor- 
ding to Reihl. 

Live entertainment includes 
dancing by the Hispanic Cul- 
tural Club, a demonstration 
by the Self Defense Club and 
the LVC Jazz Band. 

Artist-signed festival 
posters, available for $2 
before April 14, will cost $3 
the day of the event. Profits 

from these collector's items 
will help to cover the poster 
costs, said Reihl. 

Haslett said the idea for the 
festival originated in a brain- 
storming session in LVC's 
September Leadership 
Retreat. The original idea for 
a Hot Air Balloon Display 
eventually grew to the event 
that it is now. 

Haslett said WQXA-FM 
(Q106), the primary source of 
advertisement for the event, 
will co-host and DJ the festival. 
Other advertisements, in the 
form of posters and news ads 
throughout the Harrisburg, 
York, Lancaster, and Lebanon 
area, will draw from the 
South-Central Pennsylvania 

The entire day is being 
sponsored by outside groups, 
according to Haslett. Sponsors

The structure of The Quad's 
editorial positions has been 
"changed to capitalize on the

Hostetler. "She has the ability 
to lead next year's staff and

Features editor Pete Johan-

editor, combining the 
positions of news and features 
editors. "Pete has done a great 
job of helping to expand our 
features department," 
Hostetler said. "I'm sure he

same enthusiasm and 
dedication as he gave this 

A temporary position, the 
layout editor, will become 
permanent with the addition 
of sophomore Maria Mon-

Hostetler, Montesano has 

worked with the editorial staff 
and has learned to design The 
Quad's layout. 

Hostetler said advertising 
manager Bob Fager will 
assume duties as advertising/ 
business manager. "This move 
■will combine the positions and 
be more efficient than our 
present system," said 
Hostetler. "This year, Bob has

It's Silent! 

by Lorraine Englert 

As anyone who has been in 
Gossard Memorial Library 
well knows, there is an abun- 
dance of books within. 
William E. Hough III, head 
librarian, says, "The stacks 
are getting crowded." 

To remedy this situation, 
Hough devised a plan to 
dispose of some books. The 
idea: to have a silent auction. 
Inside of each individual book 
(placed on top of the card 
catalog) is a sheet of paper. 
Anyone interested in buying a 
volume can list their name and 
their bid on this sheet of 

Each lot of books will be 
out on display for ap- 
proximately one week. At the 
end of this time, the highest 
bidder will receive the book. A 
minimum bid costs ten cents 

and each successive bidder 
must raise the previous bid by 
ten cents. 

Books have been selected to 
be auctioned for various 
reasons. Some of the books 
date back to 1911 or earlier. 
However, there are also fairly 
recent editions of books which 
are still valid, but have been 
replaced by the newest edition 
of the series. In some instan- 
ces, there are multiple copies of 

The books cover all areas of 
interest. Some literary figures 
represented among these 
volumes include Shakespeare, 
Hugo, Dumas, Poe, Dickens, 
and others. For more leisurely 
reading there are some novels,

Guys and Dolls: Good But Not Quite Sinful 

by A my Hosteller 

Several individual perfor- 
mances in LVC's production 
of Guys and Dolls were almost 
"so good, I don't know why 
it's not a sin." 

A musical, like a good cup 
of coffee, has to have all the 
right ingredients. Director M. 
Dean Sauder strove for a 
blend of new and experienced 
LVC talent in the Frank 
Loesser show. Sometimes the 
mixture was strong, sometimes 
syrupy, but it left you feeling 
warm inside. 

Guys and Dolls is a typical 
musical. It has two love 
stories, a twist where you ex-

pect it, and enough homilies 
that would shame Ben Fr- 
anklin. Musicals can wallow in 
sentimentality, if the cast 
allows it. The Guys and Dolls 
cast didn't allow the show to 
be overcome with sweetness. 

Senior Mark Wagner (gam- 
bler Sky Masterson) and 
sophomore Jackie Newcomer 
(Miss Sara Brown) combined 
their musical and acting talen- 
ts as leads. Although 
Wagner's experienced voice 
sometimes overshadowed 
Newcomer's thin voice, 
Newcomer has the potential to 
become a regular in future 

Get in Shape 

by David M. Frye 

For the past generation, college students seemingly have 
pulled the wool over society's eyes. "We are mature, young 
adults. We can make our own decisions. Let us." These wor- 
ds have constituted students' Litany of License. In response, 
administrators acquiesced to these demands, relaxing 
academic standards and loosening up campus social policies. 

The return to "the basics" in education demonstrates the 
dubious wisdom of lax academic requirements. But what of 
student self-governance and self-responsibility? Here is the 
site of deception and fraud. 

Students say they are mature and responsible. Many are. 
Some students enter LVC as freshmen with more poise, 
decency, and maturity than other LVC students will ever 

If students here were as mature as they would like everyone 
to believe, the grounds around some of the dormitories would 
not resemble land-fills. (You know who you are!) 

If students here were mature, they would keep food on 
their plates instead of on the floor and keep serving con- 
tainers in the salad bars instead of at their own tables. They 
would recognize that abusing food is immature and wrong. 

If students here were mature, they would seek to maintain 
college property rather than to vandalize it. Bent silverware, 
"trashed" furniture, and molested shrubbery don't make this 
college one bit more beautiful. 

This all sounds grim and hopeless. It need not be, because 
some students are mature. They need to let the children on 
campus know that irresponsible behavior won't be tolerated. 
The whole college community needs to let prospective stu- 
dents know that only the reasonably responsible need apply 
for admission. 

People can change things for the better only if they are 
willing to admit problems exist. Until students here at LVC 
want to change enmasse, they have been given more than 
enough freedom.

LVC musicals. This match 
worked particularly well in 
their duet, "I'll Know." 

Wagner stumbled on a few 
lines in Sunday night's per- 
formance, but he carried the 
part convincingly. Since he 
was last seen as a lead in 
Finian's Rainbow, Wagner 
has matured and it shows. Sky 
Masterson is not an innocent 
youth, and Wagner played the 
cynical gambler-turned- 
missionary character with dep- 
th and age. 

Newcomer's portrayal of 
missionary Sara Brown gave 
the role personality and 
humanity. She added the right 
touch of prudishness and 
naivete necessary to the part 
— and she plays a good drunk. 
Some of her gestures, however, 
were stiff and doll-like. 

As Nathan Detroit, Erik En- 
ters turned in one of the 
evening's finest performances. 
Although he miffed a few lines 
and paced aimlessly, Enters 
has a full and powerful stage 
voice which he used to its full 
effect. Enters played on 
Detroit's reluctance to marry 
for all it was worth, but didn't 
stretch the limitations of his 
role. He knew when to 
provoke a laugh and more im- 
portantly, when not to. En- 
ters' duet with fiancee Miss 
Adelaide, "Sue Me," was one 
of the show's funniest momen- 

Martha Bliss' performance 
was the most uneven in the 
show. As an actress, Bliss is 
limited to playing whining 
females with nasal voices. 
Her rendition of "Adelaide's 
Lament" was good, but her 

character is supposed to have a 
cold. Bliss "discovered" a 
New York accent in 
"Lament" and later in "Take 
Back Your Mink" that she 
didn't use during the rest of 
her performance. 

The surprise talent of the 
night was freshman Kevin 
Biddle as Nicely Johnson. His 
enthusiasm for the role was 
certainly catching as he got 
some of the best laughs and 
applause. His "Sit Down, 
You're Rockin' the Boat" and 
duet with Wallace Umberger 
in "Guys and Dolls" were the 
most energetic and dynamic 
songs of the show. Biddle and 
Umberger's performances as 
Detroit's sidekicks alone are 
worth the admission price. 

Supporting characters ad- 
ded comic and sentimental 
notes to Swerling and 
Burrow's story. Todd Hrico's 
"More I Cannot Wish You" 
was as sentimental as a 
Hallmark card. His voice, 
although excellent, was too 
young for the song. As 
Agatha, Patty Houseknecht 
gave the show a shot of 
comedy when it was in danger 
of becoming saccharine and 

Choreographer Richard 
Wilson's dances worked well 
with the music. The stylized 
movements in "Crapshooter's 
Dance" reflected the intensity 
and concentration of the gam- 
blers as they blew away five, 
six or seven "potatoes." The 
jumps and gambling gestures 
were well-timed and used 
sparingly for effect. The Hot 
Box Girls, however, couldn't 
dance their way out of a hat- 

box. "A Bushel and a Peck" 
was a fiasco. The dancers were 
uncoordinated and uncomfor- 
table with the dance 
movements. It was em- 
barassing to watch them pran- 
ce and trip around the stage. 

Technically, the show was 
sound. Steve Lefurge's set 
design worked well with all 
scenes, and the synchronized 
curtain and lighting changes 
didn't interfere with the 
audience's appreciation. 

Under the direction of Jon 
Heisey, the pit orchestra 
played well but tended to 
overpower some of the 
singers. Bassist Dominic 
Mariani's head and shoulders 
do not, however, contribute to 
the overall aesthetic experien- 

Producer Gregg Klinger said

Tickets for Saturday's per-

p.m. Sunday. 

Overall, Guys and Dolls

talent, but needs a good direc- 
tor to mix the right cast.

The Right Stuff — 

by Pete Johansson 

Spring Surprise 

Well, ya-hoo. Spring Arts is just around the corner, and all 
I can say is it's about time. What a dreary little winter it's 
been. It's time to get outside and walk around barefoot play 
frisbee, and ogle, ogle, ogle. What could be more fitting than 
a wonderful celebration of the rites of Spring, with food 
merriment, and happiness galore? Spring Arts is almost here' 
Here's what's in store: 

—Just to whet our appetites, this weekend we're going to 
have a wonderful Balloon Show! Two unsuspecting freshmen 
will be chosen at random, abducted, bound and gagged, and 
dumped into two huge hot-air balloons. Moments before the 
event they will be chloroformed and off they go! Imagine 
their surprise when hours later they come to about thirty 
thousand feet over the Atlantic. The first one to make it back 
to the college center desk will win dinner for two at Jim 
Dandy's. Good luck, kids! 

—To kick off Spring Arts Weekend, we'll thrill to Bob and 
Wanda's Daredevil Sacred Mime Troupe. Sit back and relax 
as Bob and Wanda touchingly mime scenes from St. 
Matthew's Passion while twelve-thousand-horsepower 
engines strapped to their backs hurtle them toward a solid 
brick wall. Can they finish the scene in time to leap over the 
wall? Or will the Spatula Brigade finish the act for them? 
Come and find out. 

—Next on the bill is Eduardo's Emoting Elephants. Three 
African elephants will act out scenes from Shakespeare's 
Merchant of Venice and Tennessee Williams' A Glass 
Menagerie. Eduardo swears that the animals are under 
control now, and they won't stampede into the audience like 
they did the last time, so Officer Finkle shouldn't have to try 
to wrestle them to the ground and cuff 'em this year. Bring 
your camera. 

—Just when you thought it was safe to walk in the 
academic quad, we'll be seeing a new round of art exhibits. 
Featured this year are the Annville-Cieona Pre-School 
Impressionistic Exhibit (pre-school kids trying to reproduce 
Monet's work with fingerpaints), the Women in Crisis 
Center's Sculpture in Crisis Exhibit, the Michaels Look- 
what-I-can-do-with-Meatloaf Exhibit, and the Hershey State 
Home for the Criminally Insane Toenail Art Exhibit. 

—And let's not forget all the yummy food we'll be 
surrounded by. Baskin Robbins will be here again to "exper- 
iment" with all their new flavors. If last year's Rutabaga 
Swirl, Buffalo Surprise, and Jimmy Hoffa Sherbet (not a hot 
item, as I recall) are any indication, this booth will be the 
place to be this year. Other food concessions will include 
Popsicle Flambes (eat 'em quick!), Stuffed Rice (order a good 
three days in advance), and Eduardo's Elephant Kebobs Gust 
in case).

Learning True Lessons 

by Amy Hos tetter 

Every two weeks, as I rush to prepare The Quad for layout 
by assigning articles and haranguing campus members, I of- 
ten wonder if it's worth the effort. Many times it seems that 
LVC students (as well as faculty and administrators) are 
apathetic about everything and that they don't really care 
about the college they've chosen to attend. Sometimes I feel 
as though The Quad could print anything — and nobody 
would notice. 

Lately, however, people have been reacting to The Quad in 
the form of Letters to the Editor or even dyeing the food a 
different color. Some people do sit up and take note — and 
that's what makes it worthwhile. 

But, on a larger scale, what makes this college worth atten- 
ding? I know of several students who could not say why they 
decided to attend LVC. Is it the facilities? The social life? The 
faculty and staff? Is it even anything that LVC offers? 

What makes LVC worthwhile is what you put into your 
learning experience. Learning is not a passive experience. 
Sure, you can go through your classes taking notes, not 
saying a word, and get good grades, but what have you lear- 
ned? Not much. Unfortunately, our society fosters this at- 
titude of "I paid for it, now give me the best." Education is 
not "given," it's "taken" — taken from the professors who 
take the time to talk to you outside of class, taken from 
discussions with fellow students, taken from listening to 
people more experienced and mature than yourself, taken 
from the experience of living in a dormitory where you can't 
run away from people and problems. 

After you graduate (or even now), when you are inter- 
viewed for a company, business or even graduate school, 
you'll be asked, "What can you bring to our company? What 
do you expect to get from working here?" In this sense, LVC 
doesn't tell the whole truth to prospective students. Instead of 
telling them about Garber Science Center or our new com- 
puter laboratory, our admissions counselors should stress the 
intangibles that are part of a student's education. Serving as a 
club president, chairing a committee, bull sessions with frien- 
ds, organizing an arts festival, managing a student 
newspaper: these are the lessons from which students learn 
values that will serve them the rest of their lives. 

It's a shame that some students still don't understand what 
they gained by attending Lebanon Valley College. Maybe 
they'll realize what they missed when they're gone. 

So there you have it, a whole weekend chock-full of fun 
and surprises. Shuck off your winter coats, throw away those 
mittens and come out for all the games and happiness of 
Spring Arts Weekend. 

The Vinyl Verdict — BadN.E. W.S. 

N.E. W.S. by Golden Earring is little more than old news. 

Most of N.E. W.S. is an attempt to recreate Golden 
Earring's last hit, "Twilight Zone." There is nothing wrong 
with building a consistant sound to identify themselves, but 
there is no need to make the same album twice. They take 
themselves too seriously when they should be taking a critical 
look at what they are producing. 

Goerge Kooymans and Barry Hay, who write all the band's 
material, seem preoccupied with macho cliches and a predic- 
table song construction. Most of the songs are about the ex- 
ploits of men who think they are tough. "Mission Im- 
possible" is about a guy who "controlled his part of town," 
but within the song he never actually does anything but say 
how cool he is. The song is also musically representative of 
the rest of the album. Between the heavy, grinding bass line 
and Koymans' rough vocals, they create a musical friction 
that most listeners will find grating. As one of the longest 
songs on the album, it is especially disappointing. 

The rest of the album is just as predictable. "It's Over 
Now" starts off enjoyably with a few measures of acoustic 
guitar, but immediately returns to their format of grinding 
bass and simplistic beat. The extra dubs of Kooymans' voice 
°nly exaggerates the sand-paper sound. The lyrics are not 
forgettable simply because they have been heard so many 
times before: 

"Never though I could be such a fool, 
But when it's over, baby, 

by Diana Carey 

What can you do" 
Or in "Clear Night Moonlight:" 

"Picture the two of us! 

We're so happy, so much in love..." 
Such an abundance of cliches leaves the songs emotionally 

Two of the more creative songs on the album are "I'll 
Make It All Up To You" and "When The Lady Smiles." 
"I'll Make It All Up To You" tells about a love relationship 
by describing paintings by Van Gogh and Picasso. The 
Keyboard's unexpected stop/start movement combined with 
a slight echo effect creates a modern art atmosphere. "When 
The Lady Smiles," which has been released as a single, is the 
most appealing song on the album. It starts quietly with a ten- 
se, restrained guitar, then suddenly breaks the restraints with 
hammering percussion and huge, cutting chords. The melody 
is major rather than minor, giving it a brighter sound than the 
rest of the songs on the album. Kooyman's manic voice 
humorously expresses a man's obsession with a woman, and 
his exclamations of ecstacy and frustration make the song 
even funnier. If the band could have maintained the energy 
present in this one song, the album would be a success. 

With such a well-made single, many listeners may be 
deceived into buying the album when they would be better off 
buying the 45. Golden Earring has potential, but N.E. W.S. 
only shows the band's need to strive for melodic and lyrical 

Letter to 
the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

I am a senior and have been 
at this school all four years. I 
have invested over 28,000 
dollars, 10,000 of which I 
must pay back for the next ten 
years. Why, then, am I hassled 
when I try to get a student 
price ticket for a show. 

Since I left my Student ID 
home, I was told that I could 
not buy s ticket for Guys and 
Dolls at Student price, even 
though I had my meal card 
and my Pa. Photo License. 
This is really ridiculous! The 
person at the desk knows i'm a 
student — she sees me every 
day! The best part was getting 
the ticket with someone else's 
I.D. — how stupid can this 
place get!? I came to this 
school because of its size and 
the individuality one has at a 
smaller school— for what!? I 
was told I could buy a ticket 
for $3.50 and appeal later. 
Wonderful, I would probably 
get a refund next year when 
I'm not even here anymore.

Rutherford Visits Arctic 

by Pete Johansson 

What did you do last 

For Frank Rutherford, son 
of F. Allen Rutherford, Chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees 
here, the summer was spent in 
the Arctic Circle. Together 
with a team of eight other ex- 
plorers, Rutherford, a biology 
teacher at the Mercersberg 
Academy, was on campus last 
Tuesday showing slides of his 
Arctic expedition. 

The team was made up of 
four students and four faculty 
members from the Academy, 
along with a man from the 
Explorer's Club. The expedi- 
tion came on the one 
hundredth anniversary of the 
first international arctic ex- 
ploration, of which a faculty 
member of Mercenberg was a 
part. One hundred years ago, 
twenty-seven men left to 
explore the arctic region in and 
above northeast Canada. Six 

The men on the original 
expedition were to make camp 
and conduct their experiments 

near a channel far above the 
Arctic Circle. Their 
instructions were to wait there 
for a ship to arrive to bring 
them home. If by a certain 
day, no ship had arrived, they 
were to assume the channel 
was blocked by ice, and they 
were to travel by foot to a 
southern location, dragging a 
huge rowboat overland with 
them. On the designated day, 
no ship had arrived (the chan- 
nel had been blocked by ice) 
and the men broke camp. 

The trip was to have been 
made in forty days. Instead, it 
was three months later that the 
men arrived at the pick-up 
site, desperately weakened by 
starvation. The men made 
camp by building up walls of 

snow and rock and flipping 
the boat upside-down on top 
for a roof. About a week later, 
help arrived. The rescue party 
found them lying in the snow. 
The boat had blown over in a 
storm a few nights before, and 
the men were too weak to put 


OCS (Army Officer Candidate School) is a 14-week challenge 
to all that's in you. . . the mental, the physical, the spint that are part 
of what makes a leader. 

If OCS were easy, it couldn't do the job. It wouldn't bring out 
the leader in you, or help you discover what you have inside. 

But when you finish and graduate as a commissioned officer 
in the Army, you'll know. You'll know you have what it takes to lead. 
And you'll be trim, alert, fit, and ready to exercise the leadership skills 
that civilian companies look for. 

If you're about to get your degree and you want to develop your 
leadership ability, take the OCS challenge.

it back up. Seven were alive, 
but one died on the boat back. 

Rutherford's expedition left 
to find the camp of the 
original expedition. There they 
would leave a plaque and hold 
a brief service in memory of 
the Mercenberg faculty 
member who died there. 

Rutherford's group 
managed to find the island, 
but not the site of the first 
team. They held their service 
on the island and left the 
plaque there. They did manage 
to find traces of the camp at 
the pick-up point, however. 
The structure that held the 
boat had fallen in places, but 
was still intact. 

Rutherford said the 
Academy is planning another 
trip in two years. They may 
send a group to find an ancient 
Viking camp, or may do some 
underwater exploration in the 
Arctic. Rutherford is eager to 
go. Why? 

"I don't like hot weather."

Spring Arts Festival Readied 

hv T 7CY7 \4o\iar^^^ 

by Lisa Meyer 

This year's LV Spring Arts 
Festival, scheduled for April 
27-29 features greater com- 
munity involvement, accor- 
ding to student coordinator 
Judy Walter. 

The advertising area was 
expanded to include Lan- 
caster, Reading and 
Harrisburg in an attempt to 
draw a larger crowd, Walter 
said. She expects between 
15,000 and 20,000 people and 
hopes for good weather 
"because if it is a terrible day, 
people will not want to drive a 
long distance for the 

The Spring Arts Festival will 
officially open when "Re- 
Creation," a show choir from 
Susquehanna University, sings 
show tunes and popular songs 
at 8 p.m. on April 27. The 
closing performance on April 
29 will be a comedy entitled 
"The Rivals" by Gable- 
Geckler Productions of Long 
Island, NY. 

One featured event will be 
the performance of Handel's 
Royal Fireworks Music with 
its original instrumentation. 
Seldom performed in the 
original, the concert com- 
memorates the 235th anniver- 
sary of its first performance. 

The orchestra, conducted by 
Mr. David Bilger of the LVC 
faculty, consists of students 
and Lancaster County 

Many campus groups will 
perform throughout the 
weekend, including LVC's Jazz 
Band, Clarinet Choir, Wind 
Ensemble, SAI, Sinfonia and 
Guild Student Group. Alan 
Junggust and Carol Neiman 
will sing show tunes and the 
Spanish Flair flamenco troupe 
will also appear. 

Area children will get a 
preview of the festivities 
during Children's Day on 
April 27. Kevin Biddle and 

Seniors Set to Graduate 

The remaining five weeks of 
classes will be busy for LVC 
seniors as they try to complete 
classwork and participate in a 
round of senior class activities, 
said senior class president 
Judy Sargeant. 

According to Dean of 
Students George Marquette, 
Student Council gives each 
class $1 per class member per 
semester. Any money not used 
by the class in its senior year or 
earmarked for a reunion is 
"expected" to be given to the 
college in the form of a class 
gift, such as a rock or 
flagpole, said Sargeant. 

"We're trying to cram a 
'Senior Week' into four 
days," said Sargeant. Senior 
class officers met Monday 
night to finalize plans for 
several events, including a 
Spring Arts "Grove," a class 
picnic, and a camping trip. 
Sargeant said she is "trying to 
bring back" the traditional 
week, which was dropped by 
the college a few years ago. 

With a budget of about 
$1400 and money given to the 
Class of '84 by Student Coun- 
cil (about $1600), Sargeant 
said the class can afford the 
activities and have money left 
over for a reunion and class 

On May 3, senior class 
members will be treated to a 
class "celebration" by 
President Arthur Peterson at 
the Grantville Holiday Inn. 
Sargeant said that Peterson 
has supported her efforts to 
schedule activities for the 

A motion before the Board 
of Trustees will determine if 
exercises for the 115th Com- 
mencement Ceremony will be 
held outside. Sargeant said the 
idea is "still up in the air" and 
is hampered by maintenance 
and weather problems. A 
senior class meeting will be 
held later this month to 
finalize graduation plans. 

Reputation problems have 
also hampered efforts to 
locate a site for a senior party, 
said Sargeant. "As soon as 
they hear it's LVC, they don't 
want us," she said. The 
Lebanon Eagles Club would 
allow only class members age 
21 or older, she said. 

Sargeant tentatively 
outlined the activities as

Due to bad weather, the 
men's track team has only 
competed in the Western 
Maryland Relays this season 
to date. The team had some 
fine individual performances 
although they had no entries in 
nine events — shot put, discus, 
long jump, .high jump, pole 
vault, shuttle hurdles, inter- 
mediate hurdles, distance 
medley, and triple jump. 

In the 3200 relay, the team 
of Lyle Trumbul, Jim Reilly, 
Gary Swank, and John Hib-

Dr. Marquette Anticipates 
LV Guest Policy to Remain 

by Maria Montesano 

The current guest policy, 
student voting procedures and 
end-of-year evaluation are ex- 
pected to remain intact next 
year, according to Dean of 
Students George Marquette. 

He said the policy has 
worked quite well from his 
viewpoint and that only minor 
problems had been brought to 
his attention. He added that if 
that is any indication of the 
policy's successfulness, it 
worked much better than 

Marquette also said there 
has been a limited number of 
problems concerning parents 
and roommates, and it ap- 
pears that these problems were 
worked out between the in- 
volved students. 

Marquette will rely on the 
results of student surveys 
distributed last week to give an 
accurate picture of how the 
policy really worked. He ex- 
pects students to respond 

with integrity. The survey will 
be a "major influence" on the 
Board of Trustees' decision to 
continue or drop the policy, 
first instituted last September. 

When the results are tallied, 
the Dean of Students Office 
will summarize on different 
levels including floor, dorm 
and gender. This will deter- 
mine to what extent the policy 
is being used and how well it is 
working in each particular 

The results will then be 
distributed to the Committee 
on Student Affairs and Ex- 
tracurricular Activities for 
review. Marquette will then 
make a recommendation to 
this committee. Then commit- 
tee chairman. George S. Glen, 
will make a recommendation 
to the Board of Trustees. 
Marquette expects his recom- 
mendation to be a positive one 
from prior information. 
At this point, Marquette 

said he does not see that any 
extensions will be added to the 
policy. If any major problems 
are found, however, he said 
the policy could be dropped 
but does not feel this will hap- 
pen. If any problems develop, 
Marquette said he would 
rather see them worked out 
with the involved people. 

Marquette said that when 
the Board sets any policy, he 
"feels responsible to im- 
plement it as effectively" as he 
can and try to continue it from 
semester to semester. He ad- 
ded it is "up to the students to 
make them work," not him- 
self or the resident assistants. 
He added that he knows there 
must be some flaws in the 
policy and he is relying on the 
student surveys to supply him 
with these. Although he was 
confronted with "minor 
problems" during the policy's 
first year, Marquette stressed 
his optimism that the policy 
will continue next year.

We Don't Like 

to Brag, But.. 

Lebanon Valley College's newspaper, The 
Quad, took top honors in this year's American 
Scholastic Press Association newspaper 

The Quad's score of 915 points out of 
possible 1000 gave it a "First Place Award 
with Special Merit," one of only two college 
newspapers in The Quad's category of 
schools with enrollments between 500 and 
1000 to receive this award. 

In presenting the award to Dave Frye, last 
semester's editor, an ASPA judge said, "You 
and your staff are to be congratulated for 
producing an excellent newspaper." 

Quad advisor Arthur Ford said, "It's always 
nice to be recognized, but it's even more 
gratifying when an objective third party has 
good things to say." Ford added that "the 
staff should be commended on their hard 
work and dedication." 

The judge's evaluations are based on 
content coverage, general plan, page design, 
editing, art and creativity. The Quad received 
perfect scores in page design and editing.

Letter to 
The Editor 



Dear Editor: 

As advisor to Wig and 
Buckle and Alpha Psi Omega 
and as director of the 
Homecoming play I wish to 
express my admiration and 
respect for the reviews of the 
three one-act plays and of 
Guys and Dolls you have 
published. Scott Kirk and 
Amy Hostetler have set a new 
and challenging level of 
dramatic criticism for all of us 
involved in drama at Lebanon 
Valley to measure ourselves 

Both Kirk and Hostetler 
have broken out of the dreary 
mold of vapid praise, plot 
summary, and mutual back 
patting that has too often 
passed for play reviewing on 
campus. Both Kirk and 
Hostetler gave enthusiastic 
praise where work was well 
done — Kirk for the emotional 
power of the leads in Andante 
and Hostetler for four of the 
five main performers in Guys 
and Dolls. Just as important, 
both reviewers made equally 
sharp and specific criticism 
where they thought that was 

Now each of us who saw the 
plays might have differed with 
the reviewers on some of the 
details — I, for example en- 
joyed Martha Bliss's 
adenoidal Adelaide much 
more than Wally Umberger's 
dopey-eyed, satchell assed 
gangster — but what matters is 
that the reviewers were making 
the kind of precise judgments 
that can only come from an in- 
telligent and interested atten- 
tion to the plays. At times 
their criticism was blunt and 
unqualified; more often they 
subordinated some minor flaw 
to a larger success. What most 
impressed me about both 
reviews was how judiciously 
each weighed weaknesses 
against strengths to give a

The Vinyl Verdict — 

Queen Going Through Identity Crisis 

by Diana Carey 

Although Queen is between styles, they still give an 
interesting performance on their latest album, The Works. 

While Queen once had a definite reputation for hard- 
rocking regal elegance, their identity has become vague with 
the onset of New Wave. On The Works, they seem not to 
know which direction to take, so they go in several directions 
at once. Their lack of identity over the past few years has 
fragmented their audience, but it has also led to some unusual 
musical output. 

The diversity of styles on this album showcases Queen's 
versatility. With "Man on the Prowl" they take a trip in the 
vein of their 1980 hit, "Crazy Little Thing Called Love. " It's 
a 50's, Elvis-type song, complete with bopping background 
vocals and some excellent piano improvisation by guest 
musician Fred Mandel. "Keep Passing the Open Windows" 
goes in the opposite direction, with a take-off on Joe 
Jackson's latest style. The smooth, almost jazz sound is 
coupled with positive lyrics about surviving in a world that 
puts you down. 

"Is This the World We Created . . .?" takes off in yet 
another direction. This toned-down protest song laments the 
disparity between rich and poor. Altough the sentiment seems 
sincere, the lyrics about "hungry mouths" only seem trite. 
The thing that saves the track is Brian May's beautiful 
acoustic guitar work. The moving simplicity of the melody 
expresses the emotion that the lyrics miss. 

Much of "The Works" is a reaction against technology. 
While the musical trend is to capitalize on technology, Queen 

points out its detrimental side effects. "Machines (or 'Back to 
Humans')" protests against the computerization of mankind. 
Synthesized robotic voices argue with human voices to the 
sound of clean, passionless background music. The lyrics use 
"computerese" to show the process of dehumanization: 

"Its midwife's a disk drive 

Its sex- life is quantised 

It's self -perpetuating a parahumanoidarianised. " 

"Radio GaGa" expresses a loyalty to radio in spite of the 
recent fascination with video technology. Unfortunately, 
band member Roger Taylor tries to make his point by using a 
refrain of "radio gaga, radio googoo," which only ends up 
undercutting the rest of the lyrics. 

Queen is at its best with May's songs of straight rock. 
"Hammer to Fall," a song about the futility of the nuclear 
era, has a heavy, grinding beat and one of May's screaming 
guitar solos that most listeners never tire of hearing. On 
"Tear It Up," vocalist Freddie Mercury loses his typical 
pretentiousness and snarls out the song. Surging background 
vocals have that lusciously thick texture reminiscent of their 
days with producer Roy Thomas Baker, who also produced 
the Cars' first album. Queen proves their forte is in sheer 

The diversity of the album may be too much for some 
listeners with definite tastes. For those interested in Queen's 
progression over the years, however, The Works is an 
interesting example of a group making the transition from the 
70's to the 80's.

Maintenance Criticized 

Dear Editor: 

To: Upper echelon type people 
who sit behind LVC's large 

You "seem" to be quite 
concerned with saving money 
here at LVC Have you ever 
taken time to look into one 
large money waster: the main- 
tenance situation. The 
problem is not the workers in 
the department, it is the 
method used to "maintain" 
LVC. It seems that until 
something breaks completely 
it will not be looked at or 

fixed. The beauty of this 
method is that it costs much 
more (out of the students 
pockets) to fix something 
completely than to pay a small 
amount for occasional main- 
tenance. Would you buy a new 
car and refuse to ever 
change the oil? 

Can you honestly say the 
following were checked and 
maintained regularly: 
Ad building emergency lights. 
Now finally replaced. Most 
did not work for at least the 
last two years. Safety?? 

Funkhouser emergency 

Fixed about two weeks ago, 
but it wasn't working during 
the last blackout when we 
needed it. Safety??

A fire drill failed because the 
system refused to go off. Shall 
we call this a safety hazard?

The Right Stuff — 

by Pete Johansson 

Memo to the Class of '84 

Sit back and relax. I have a story for you. 

A long time ago in a far away place there was a composer 
named Robert Schumann. Young Robert had it all: a wonder- 
ful gift for music, artistic parents, a bright future, the works. 
Robert wasn't satisfied, however. He wanted to be a better 
pianist, and so he invented a device that would stretch his 
fingers, thus improving his reach. The result was that Robert 
crippled his right hand, thus ending a promising concert 

Robert's life grew ever stranger. He still composed, and 
when one listens to his music today, one can hear an almost 
melancholy lilt to his melodies, coupled with rhythms that 
never quite seem to . . . fit. Robert began assuming pen names 
for different pieces, depending on his mood, almost letting 
three separate people do his writing for him. Along about 
1854 he began showing signs of emotional disintegration, and 
one night threw himself into the Rhine. Robert was fished out 
by a passing boat, and years later died alone in an insane 

The moral of the story? Don't trust the real world? Don't 
try to be something better than you're not? Stay away from 
pianos? Not quite. 

Those of you not going to grad school are going to find out 
a few things awfully quick. Let's assume you find a job, away 
from home, maybe in a big city. Soon you'll find out that no 
one at work, least of all your employers or supervisors, are 
going to give a damn about your life outside the job. They 
don't care if you're making enough to pay the rent, pay off 
your school loans, or whatever. They just want you there and 
functional at 9:00 every morning. 

You're also going to find out that landlords, phone com- 
panies, supermarkets, etc., are only going to be interested in 
your writing checks that don't bounce. No one is going to 

care about your love life or social life. Looking back, you 
may find that LVC was the last place outside your family that 
people cared enough to ask you how you're doing. 

All this together makes for a pretty bleak picture of the 
future. It's going to be easy to let the strain of a job and the 
pressure of unpaid bills mount up to a daily fight to just make 
it through the week. Believe me, it happens. That's when it 
becomes essential to reach back and grab onto your liberal ar- 
ts education. I know you've heard it before, but your time 
here has prepared you to be more than just another cog in the 
work force. LVC has educated you to be more than that. It 
might be the hardest thing in your life to do, but you have to 
be able to look out from under the daily stress and see what 
else is going on in the world. You might find a little optimism, 
and it could save your life. 

My feeling is that Robert wasn't able to see past his music. 
When that went, he had nothing. If you haven't learned 
anything else here, please try to hold on to the fact that you— 
every one of you — are so much more than just what your 
major has trained you to be. You've taken courses in the 
sciences, the arts, the social sciences, religion, yes, even gym, 
that together make you more than just a BioChem major, or a 
Music major, or a Religion major, or whatever you are. Find 
out what else you've become and hold onto that for dear life. 
It might be a long time before you find someone who's going 
to see past your major, and until then LVC just might be the 
think to carry you through. 

End of sermon. Take care, class of '84. We'll miss you. I'm 
going to miss some of you more than others, and if it happens 
that this is our goodbye, so be it. Until we meet again, 

The secret of life is that it's never too late to have a happy

Editorial -Ah, Sprin gtime! Letter to the Editor 

by David Frye 

The greening of Annville each Springtime inexorably draws 
students into the sun's warm gaze. Some succumb; some fight 
the impulse and remain committed to their studies. To many, 
the Rites of Spring seem more urgent than non-Euclidean 
Geometry or Electoral College Reform. 

How can professors compete with Nature and her 
beckonings? Not too successfully, I fear. Windowless class- 
rooms make the battle somewhat more balanced. Outdoor 
classes admit defeat. Perhaps the college's strategic fault lies 
in the academic calendar. 

Who among us would not gladly relinquish two cold, 
snowy, dark weeks in harsh January to begin the second 
semester, when the outdoors harkens only to the well- 
insulated die-hards interesting in training for the 1988 Winter 
Olympics? In exchange... freedom! 

Seniors would have lofted their mortarboards skyward in 
jubilation; underclassmen would have the jump on the 
summer job market; professors would be free to contemplate 
their next books and to relax with their families; 
administrators would be scurrying to line up new students and 
greater endowments. 

Except for a few dollars' worth of fuel oil, we have nothing 
to lose and much to gain. Let's change the calendar. 


Spring bears added meaning this year for the senior class. 
The last round of club parties and ceremonies mark the 
denouement of a four-year career. Like the automatic doors 
in the title sequence of the old Get Smart series, our 
undergraduate career doors will soon close behind us. Ahead 
are the doors to careers, medical school, graduate school, and 
the unknown. 

We cannot turn back. That way lies personal decay and 
emotional backsliding. While the future seems forbidding and 
monolithic, we can rest assured of our abilities to carve out 
niches for ourselves. 

Leaving behind the sometimes frustratingly paternal 
embrace of Lebanon Valley College, we assume our roles as 
responsible adults. I say "responsible," because of our 
charge from Luke the physician: "Every one to whom much 
is given, of him will much be required."

Dear Editor: 

Any newspaperperson wor- 
th his salt cites responsibility 
as a prerequisite for good 
journalism. Unfortunately, 
Pete Johansson lacks this 
necessary ingredient as was 
brazenly apparent in his article 
in the Thursday, March 29, 
1984 issue of The Quad. 

Perhaps this immature 
young man was so preoc- 
cupied with feeling sorry for 
himself that he didn't have the 
time to check his facts: 
— Item: the resident student 
population is 632, not 800 (this 
information was obtained 
from the College Center desk). 
— Item: Dinners are not 90% 
starch. A review of every 
weekly menu going back to the 
beginning of the academic 
year will reveal that there is a 
balance of protein, car- 
bohydrate, dairy products and 
fresh fruit and vegetables. 
(Perhaps a 6th grade refresher 
course in calculating percen- 
tages would be an asset to Mr. 
Johansson's education). 
— Item: Lunch items for 
prospective students are the 
same as those served to the 
students in the cafeteria. The 
only difference is that LVC 
students go through the 
cafeteria line, prospective 
students are served a sit-down 


Perhaps a visit to an op- 
thamologist should be on Mr. 
Johansson's list of im- 
peratives. Since when have 
items such as broccoli, green 
beans, peas, lettuce, pickles 
and even the infamous baked 
potato been orange? (Except 
on April Fool's Day) By the 
way, potatoes are an excellent 
nutritional buy, providing 
thiamine, Vitamin C, niacin 
and iron. 

Betsy Gow spent a great 
deal of time and effort in put- 
ting together the meal for 
Greek Night. Many purveyors 
were contacted for ideas and 
availability of items in order to 
provide the students with a 
taste of some different foods. 
If Mr. Johansson is not of an 
adventurous nature, that good 
old American staple, peanut 
butter and jelly is always 
available. (Sorry that Mom's 
not here to cut off the crusts!) 

The Food Service workers, 
(who, by the way go through 
the cafeteria line and eat the 
same food as the students) are 
a dedicated group of workers 
who take pride in their 
knowledge and capabilities. 
Certainly there have been 
some mistakes. (What

Dean Explains RA Selections 

by Amy Hosteller 

The annual resident 
assistant (RA) selection 
process is a "multi-contact, 
difficult process, "said Dean 
of Students George Marquet- 
te. On Wednesday, Marquette 
and assistant dean Rosemary 
Yuhas announced the "win- 
ners" in the semester-long 
selection process, although 
Marquette stressed that those 
who are not selected are not 
necessarily losers. 

Over 70 LVC students ap- 
plied for the 40 positions 
available, said Marquette, 
which include 38 RA positions 
and two assistant RA 
positions. Of 76 applicants, 42 
were male and 34 were female. 
Although North College hall 
may be closed, Marquette said 
the RA for "Clio House" will 
be trained. 

The application process is 
lengthy and time-consuming, 
often involving three or even 
four interviews with Marquet- 
te or Yuhas. Students com- 
plete a formal application 
early second semester and the 
process continues throughout 
the remaining weeks. 

Marquette said he and 
Yuhas ask a series of questions 
concerning the individual 
student on the application. 
"We use that as a first jum- 
ping-off point," said 
Marquette. The questions and 
answers often indicate the way 
Marquette or Yuhas handle 
the subsequent interviews, 
which consist of "practical" 
questions, Marquette said. He 
tries to "have at least two, or 
maybe three, in-depth conver- 
sations with each applicant." 

Next, senior RAs interview 
and discuss their positions 
with the applicants. Marquette 
said this gives the applicant 

"insights from the minute-by- 
minute, day-to-day level of the 
RA position." Senior RAs 
have "total liberty" to deter- 
mine the structure of the inter- 
view; each interview is "open- 
ended" for the individual. 

Marquette said he stresses 
"teams" of RAs, rather than 
individual RAs working in a 
dormitory. He looks for "the 
right mixture of people who 
will function as a team, 
weighing several people for a 
particular spot." Realizing the 
final judgement is subjective, 
Marquette said he can only 
"hope you're correct." 

This year, Marquette said, 
"We had a good pool of solid 
applicants. It makes the 
process that much more dif- 
ficult, which is a 'plus' as far 
as I'm concerned." 

The selection process also 
considers the opinions of 
secondary sources, such as 
other students, current RAs 
and faculty members. 

According to Marquette, he 
and Yuhas look for candidates 
with four specific qualities. 
"First, they must have a 
reasonably serious academic 
approach," said Marquette. 
"They don't have to be out- 
standing achievers, but the 
way they reflect an attitude 
toward academics is a major 

Secondly, and equally im- 
portant, is the ability to relate 
to others. "You have to show 
an interest in others and ac- 
tively engage in some way to 
prove that capability," 
Marquette said. 

The third quality is the 
ability to "work closely... with 
integrity... with the Dean of 
Students Office." Finally, 
Marquette said the student 


445 E. MAPLE ST. 






PHONE 867-2822 

must give an assurance of 
commitment to his position. 

"Sometimes we have 
failures," admitted Marquet- 
te, "in that we've made a mis- 
calculation" of the student. 
When that happens, the deans 
"try to work with the RAs in- 
dividually. It's hard to obtain 
specific complaints (about 
RAs). We always have alter- 
natives in mind. We've only 
had that happen a couple of 
times when we had to ask for 
an RA's resignation." 

When the final decision is 
made, students are notified by 
mail of the recommendations. 
"We ask all of them to stop by 
to talk to us further in 
private," said Marquette. 
"We try to make it clear it's 
not a rejection list. "Current 
RAs receive notification a few 
days earlier as a courtesy. 

Current RAs have an advan- 
tage over first-year applicants 
as they complete a shortened 

version of the process. 
Marquette and Yuhas review 
the current RAs' performan- 
ces and discuss their year as 
RAs. Marquette said current 
RAs are given a preference 
unless "something indicates" 

Each year, RAs complete 
training sessions in several dif- 
ferent areas, including 
alcohol- and drug-abuse coun- 
seling and communication. 
Outside sources are used to 
conduct some sessions, while 
Dr. Carolyn Hanes of the 
LVC sociology department 
conducted a session on com- 
munication last year. 

"Ideally, we like to see the 
quality or 'technique' (of 
communication) already in the 
RA," said Marquette. 

For their work, RAs receive 
the cost for one room, while 
head RAs also receive a 
stipend of $200 per year; 
assistant RA's receive a stipend 

of $600 per year. While fees 
for attending LVC have in- 
creased $1000, the number of 
applicants has not. "We have 
the same magnitude of ap- 
plications," Marquette said, 
"although the number of ap- 
plicants listing the financial 
benefits as a major reason for 
applying increased." 

LVC was one of the first 
colleges in the country to im- 
plement the RA system, ac- 
cording to Marquette. The 
system, which began in 1956, 
first used the idea of "not 
having a non-student presence 
in the dorms," said Marquet- 

"It's quite an achievement. 
I'm very much encouraged by 
the fact that we have, an- 
nually, a sizeable number of 
students who want to be in- 
volved in the RA process and 
take that responsibility," he

Dave Blauch Receives 
A Fulbright Scholarship 

by Lisa Meyer 

Senior chemistry major 
David N. Blauch recently 
received a Fulbright scholar- 
ship and will assist in 
developing an improved solar 

Blauch plans to work for a 
year with W. John Albery, 
professor of physical 
chemistry at Imperial College 
in London. One of Albery's 
current research projects in- 
volves converting sunlight to 
electrical energy through a 
chemical reaction. 

According to Blauch, 
current solar cells have several 
disadvantages as they are inef- 
ficient and expensive both to 
install and to maintain. His 
project will develop a more ef- 
ficient system using a dye 
solution to convert light 
energy to chemical and then to 
electrical energy. 

The difficulty of this project 
is in finding a suitable dye, 
said Blauch. It must absorb 
light, be soluble enough to 

stay in solution and convert 
energy efficiently. And it must 
do all this in the 1/10 
millimeter space between two 

"If a suitable dye could be 
found, it is conceivable the cell 
could be efficient. It would 
also be cheap to operate if it 
works the way we hope it 
will, "Blauch said. 

The application process for 
the scholarship is complex in 
itself. It requires ap- 
proximately eight or nine for- 
ms, Blauch explained. The 
most important of these are 
the proposal itself and the 
curriculum vitae. 

The proposal explains what 
the applicant plans to do. If a 
project will require more than 
the one year's funding 
provided by the scholarship to 
complete, the proposal must 
show that the research can 
continue after the funding en- 
ds. It must also explain why 
the applicant chose to work 

where he did and demonstrate 
the project's importance. 

Blauch said most approved 
proposals are for projects that 
will appeal to the general 
public and be practical in the 
near future. Blauch is unusual 
in that most Fulbright ap- 
plicants who choose England 
pursue artistic or social projec- 
ts rather than scientific ones, 
he said. 

The curriculum vitae is 
more personal. In it, the ap- 
plicant must describe himself, 
including aspects ranging from 
his hobbies to his outlook 
on life. Each aspect is limited 
to one side of a piece of paper, 
so I spent much time choosing 
my words very carefully so I 
could say what I wanted to say 
without exceeding the limits," 
Blauch said. 

The final phase which ac- 
tually involves the applicant is 
his appearance before a 
screening committee. The ap- 
plicant gives an oral presen-

Then the committee asks 
questions to determine its 
feasibility and importance. It 
is also the members' job to 
evaluate how well the can- 
didate will adapt to foreign 
culture and how he will 
represent the United 
States. Their evaluations are 
compiled into one report and 
submitted to the Institute for 
International Education. 

Dean of Students George 
Marquette served as Blauch's 
advisor and appointed the 
members of the screening 
committee. These included Dr. 
Tony Neidig, Dr. Donald 
Dahlberg, Dr. Jacob Rhodes, 
Dr. Barry Hurst, Dr. Leon 
Markowicz, Dr. Donald Byrne 
and Dean Richard Reed in ad- 

dition to Marquette. 

The American Screening 
Committee uses this infor- 
mation to recommend ap- 
plicants to the countries which 
they had selected. These coun- 
tries then choose from among 
these applicants to fill 
available openings and 
nominate them for Fulbright 

Finally, the candidate must 
be approved by the Board of 
Foreign Scholarships. This 12-

A Weekend 

And Still They Come 

Dedicated to freshmen that become... 

As August-late approaches, 
Bright blue skies and sunny days 
Nature has fulfilled her season 
In flourishes of green and lazy haze. 

And still they come 
Wearing shorts and heartening smiles 
Ever so eager to search for more 
Forging friendships is never easy 
As breaking old ties from before... 

And still they come 
Laughing, working, praying 
Through days of sun and snow 
Holding on to reality by a single thread 
Learning trades to fill their lives: to grow... 

And still they come 
From every corner of the world 
Walking through four years of days 
Talents are varied popularity too 
Each capturing memories that may fade away... 

And still they come 
Shedding tears as bonds are broken 
Turning to new faces to fill the void, 
Trying harder to grow strong and proud 
Yet experiencing the very feelings they try to avoid 

And still they come 
Laughing crying preparing to leave 
Knowing there's not another August-late 
To let them try yet another path 
Before they face the world's fate... 

And still they come 
Parading in robes of blue or black 
Saying good-byes to those they'll never see, 
Bidding farewell to all they've passed 
Turning to the future and what they'll be 

But August-late approaches . . . 

And still they come.

quality of the evening's enter- 
tainment. Neither succumbed 
to the twin temptations either 
to flatter one's friends and 
classmates or to savage the 
hard and dedicated work of 
our eager amateurs. 

Since we do not have a 
theatre program at LVC, we 
are all learners and amateurs 
in drama and drama criticism, 
I every bit as much as my 
younger enthusiasts. We have 
no choice but to learn from 
one another and to learn by 
trial and error. Naturally, 
some of the students who 
worked so hard on the one act 
plays and on Guys and Dolls 
and who were criticized for 
their efforts may feel hurt and 
resentful, even betrayed. But a 
far worse fate for a director 
and cast to suffer is a bland, 
empty review that teaches 
nothing, such as I and the 
students who worked a A 
Streetcar Named Desire 
received last fall. 

Both Kirk and Hostetler 
showed themselves to be 
astute, appreciative, sensitive 
and demanding critics. Wig 
and Buckle, Alpha Psi Omega, 
Sinfonia, and SAI are good 
enough to deserve such critics. 
Good drama begets good 
criticism and good criticism 
should beget even better 
drama. If The Quad con- 
tinues to give our student 
drama and musical groups 
reviews we can learn from, 
then theatre at LVC can only

whole, a pat on the back, a 
"thank you" or "That was a 
good meal" would go much 
further for morale than 
juvenile complaints printed as 
a feature article. 

Yes, Mr. Johansson, you 
are paying for your meals. 
However, calculate the cost of 
buying 3 meals a day in a 
restaurant — 7 days a week, 
and then appreciate the fact 
that your food (one of the 
three necessities of life) is, in 
truth, a bargain. 

Finally, breakfast is served 
from 7 : 1 5 to 8 : 30 AM Monday 
through Friday. It's a pity that 
you must arise so early in or- 
der to eat. However, consider 
all those poor, "unmotivated" 
Food Service workeres who 
must arise at 4:00 AM, regard- 
less of weather and road con- 
ditions, to ensure that you 
have a hot, nourishing break- 

fast available to you.

Funkhouser fire alarm system 

Granted there was a problem

was not the reason for 
replacing two faulty tem- 
perature sensors and a few 
broken alarm switches. 
Mary Green Heating system 
The two controlling boards for 
the North and South sides of 

the building have been burned 
out for quite a while. Our new 
tuition increase will probably 
just cover the cost for all the 
overly heated air pumped out 
of Mary Green during the win- 
ter by the summer ventilation 
fans. A modification costing 
$50 to $100 could be preven- 
ting this wasteful situation. 

These are just a few exam- 
ples that are obvious to 
students, however many more 
must exist. 

Who is responsible for this 
disaster? Surely the main- 
tenance workers aren't. They 
do as they are told to, and so 
do their supervisors. But who 
are the supervisors of these 
supervisors? Shall we be polite 
and simply call these upper 
people incompetent? Maybe 
that's not enough. 

Get your facts straight and 
familiarize yourselves with the 
current situations on campus. 
Listen to the workers who ac- 
tually do the work. They are 
familiar with the work they 
do, and are best suited to ad- 
vise you. Take suggestions and 

complaints seriously instead of 
brushing them off. Come on 
kids! ! Shape up your act. 

The name of the game is 
TENANCE. Changing the oil 
and worn parts in your car 
every few thousand miles 

keeps it running in top shape. 
How about keeping important 
systems at LVC in top shape? 
Have them checked regularly. 
You'll see this takes less time 
and money to do.

LVC Tri-Beta Hosts 
Annual Convention 


by Julie Sealander 

On Saturday, April 28, 
Lebanon Valley hosted the 
annual convention of Beta 
Beta Beta, a national honorary 
biology society. Four schools 
were present at the conference, 
with a total of nine students 
presenting papers. LV was 
represented by David Carter, 
Si Van Do and Cynthia Nolt. 
Carter received the second 
place award for his indepen- 
dent study work with changes 
in muscle fiber of rats during 
carbohydrate loading. 

Nolt received third place for 
her work with the purification 
of Polyphosphate kinase. The 
student presentations were fif- 
teen minutes long, with a five- 
minute question and answer 
period following each. 

The featured speaker at the 
conference was Dr. Morgan, 

of the Hershey Medical Cen- 
ter, who discussed "Honesty 
in the Structure of Science." 
He warned students to beware 
of fraud in research. However, 
"he did not discourage us 
from entering the field," said 
biology major Wendy Kauf- 

The entire chapter of Beta 
Beta Beta helped in setting up 
the event, which is held at dif- 
ferent colleges each year. Dr. 
Sidney Pollack, the club's ad- 
visor, supervised the coor- 
dination of the event. The 
students enjoyed the oppor- 
tunity to gather with other 
biology majors. Said Kauf- 
fman, "It was especially in- 
teresting to get together and 
hear what research projects 
Tri-Beta members from other 
schools were involved in." 

cont. from p. 1 
Popular majors continue to be 
in the fields of business, com- 
puter science, and the sciences. 

Stanson sees the quality of 
the students as comparable to 
past years. The class ranks are 
"a shade higher" than 
previously, and there are more 
potential Presidential scholars 
this year than ever before. 
Stanson said that both Peter- 
son and his department are 
looking for "academically 
creative people." 

Where are the students 
coming from? This year there 
were few surprises. As usual, 
most students come from 
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, 
and Maryland. The ad- 
missions department had 
targeted Maryland, and the 
response from that state has 
been positive. Prospects from 
foreign countries include 
possible students from 

Scotland, Sri Lanka, Japan, 
and Africa. 

Stanson said he did not 
believe the tuition increase had 
a negative effect on 
enrollment, citing the number 
of prospective students as 
proof. He said the department 
and the Financial Aid Office 
were trying to increase the 
amount of financial aid, to 
make attending LVC possible 
for more students. 

Most of the students 
choosing LVC are looking for 
extra-curricular options. 
Many are interested in 
dramatics and music, and 
sports continue to be popular, 
especially this year with 
women. According to Stan- 
son, this was in line with 
students choosing a liberal arts 
college. "Students choosing 
any private liberal arts 
college," Stanson said, "are 
looking ahead."

Wins Award 

Cynthia L. Nolt, senior 
biology and chemistry major, 
won first place in the 
Biochemistry Division at the 
Intercollegiate Student 
Chemists 1984 Convention. 
Her presentation of the resear- 
ch she and two other LVC 
students did this past summer 
topped eight other presen- 
tations in the division. 

This victory comes on the 
heels of Nolt's first place in 
the Analytical Chemistry 
Division at last year's conven- 

Entitled "Purification of 
Polyphosphate Kinase from E. 
coli," the presentation sum- 
marized research Nolt, Jane 
Conley (sophomore chemistry 
major), and George Reiner 
(sophomore chemistry major) 
performed under the direction 
of Dr. Owen Moe, Jr., 
assistant professor of 

Moe developed a proposal 
for the ten-week research 
program and received a grant 
from Research Corporation. 

Nolt explained their resear- 
ch: "Our long-term goal is to 
immobilize the enzyme 
Polyphosphate kinase (PPK) 
for use in an ATP- 
regenerating system. ATP is a 
major energy source for syn- 
thesizing both natural and ar- 
tificial chemicals. An ATP- 
regenerating system would 
help reduce the cost of 
producing many synthetic 
drugs. This past summer we 
succeeded in obtaining a 120- 
fold purification of PPK from 
E. coli cell extracts." 

Held April 7 at Franklin & 
Marshall College, the conven- 
tion attracted undergraduate 
students from 19 colleges and 
universities. David Blauch, 
senior chemistry and computer 
science major, also presented 
his research in the Physical 
Chemistry Division.

So You Want to Clown Around 

by Lorraine Englert 

nas or hats are useful to them 
as well. 

Another difficulty, said 
Schafer, is that people 
sometimes tend to abuse 
clowns physically. This abuse 
can involve taking a clown's 
as well. 

"Quite often clowns will get 
beat on. You know, a pinch 
here, a punch there," says 
Laura Pence. As a clown you 
have to be able to quietly put a 
other stop to these confrontations, 
as the _ . « , 

Laura Pence and Rob 

Reynolds clown as a team and 
vary from the others in that 
they concentrate on mime. 
Their faces and costumes con- 
sist of black and white. 
Because of the way they dress, 
Laura says, "People tend to 
take us more seriously." 
Unlike the rest of the troupe, 
they do not carry props. 

However, as Rob says, "We 
have access to everything. If I 
want a balloon, I just reach in- 
to my pocket, blow it up, and I 
have a balloon." This ability 
to create something out of thin 
air that does not exist and 
communicate what it is to 
others is part of the 

During the Spring Arts 
Festival, a group of LVC 
students lived their childhood 
fantasies and became clowns 
for two days. 

The Rainbow Troupe, 
headed by Maria Adessa, is 
composed of eight people in- peeps but more 
eluding Marilyn Alberian, problems can arise 
Kevin Biddle, Missy Hoey, 
Laura Pence, Amy Prussing 
Rob Reynolds, and Eric 

In addition to the festival, 
they clown for 
college events, such 
Helping Hands weekend. 
Although almost everyone in 
this group has an acting back- 
ground, this is not the most 
important quality necessary to 
being a clown. "If you want to 
be a clown you have to see 
through the eyes of a child," 
says Adessa. Acute awareness 
of the environment is impor- 
tant as it is the major prop in 

Face make-up, the most 
distinctive feature of the 
clown, involves two different 
kinds of makeup: water base 
or grease paint. The water 
base washes off easily. When 
removing grease paint, cold 
cream and elbow grease are . 
necessary, especially around fa ^^ f „^ n ^ 
the eyebrows. 

Clowns can choose from a 
variety of eyes, mouths and 
noses when creating the facial 
design itself. Before painting, 
the face is drawn on a form 
which serves as a guide. 

The Rainbow Troupe 
clowns may vary in face 
designs, but they all have 
several things in common. 
Starting with "white face," 
they add their own individual 
faces and colors. Two com- 
mon features link group mem- 

There are some aspects of 
clowning not often considered 
by those who have never 
clowned. As Kevin Biddle 
says, "It helps to have ex- 
perience with kids." Clowns 
deal largely with children but 
they have to exercise a certain 
degree of caution with them. 
Some children are frightened 
by a clown's unusual ap- 
pearance, so before a clown 
can really "clown around," 
the child has to be introduced 
to the clown and accept it. 

Also, children often get 
bers. A purple or black cross, carfied and dQwns haye 

drawn on the chin serves as the 

troupe's symbol. The second 

features a red dot anywhere on 

the face, the mark of a 

Christian clown.

to be able to calm them down. 

Clowns use their surroun- 
dings as built-in props, 
remaining constantly alert to 
what is going on around them. 
This ability requires a degree 
of endurance. Also, clowns 
are usually in motion doing 
routines or bouncing from 
place to place. No matter what 
they are doing, they are

OCS (Army Officer Candidate School) is a 14-week challenge 
to all that's in you. . . the mental, the physical, the spirit that are part 
of what makes a leader. 

If OCS were easy, it couldn't do the job. It wouldn't bring out 
the leader in you, or help you discover what you have inside. 

But when you finish and graduate as a commissioned officer 
in the Army, you'll know. You'll know you have what it takes to lead. 
And you'll be trim, alert, fit, and ready to exercise the leadership skills 
that civilian companies look for. 

If you're about to get your degree and you want to develop your 
leadership ability, take the OCS challenge.

things considered, clowning

There seems to be a general

people laugh, that's a big part

Lax Lacks Confidence 

"It was a frustrating 
season," says women's 
lacrosse coach Kathy Tierney. 
"We had a lot of skilled, ex- 
perienced players, but they un- 
fortunately did not realize how 
good they were. They lacked 
confidence to win." The team 
ended the season with only one 
win — a disappointment to 
many who expected more. 

Tierney says that the team's 
number one goal seemed to be 
"playing well" and winning 
came second. This attitude 
caused the LVC women to 
"not give themselves enough 

credit (confidence) to win 
against teams that were 
beatable." An example of this 
was the Dickinson game, 
which the team lost 13-11. 
Freshman Jean Coleman led 
the team in the loss with 8 
goals, while Amy Barefoot, 
Mary McNamara, and Amy 
Abbott each tallied one. 

The team then lost another 
close one to Muhlenberg, 15- 
13. This time Sheila McElwee 
led the squad with four goals 
and two assists, followed by 
McNamara with three goals 
and three assists. Additional 

Baseball Team 
Takes Four Wins 

by Jamie Auman 

The baseball team ended its 
season with a record of 4-16-1. 
"We had a lack of players this 
year," says Coach Ned Smith, 
"We had 17 guys try out (no 
cuts). At other schools, you 
have 50 or so come out. On 
our team, everyone played 
everywhere!" Although the 
rain hindered practice time, 
Smith felt that every time 
senior Bobby Johnston pit- 
ched, the team had a good 
chance to win. 

The team's victories came 
over Muhlenberg (2-1), Get- 
tysburg (9-6), Elizabethtown 
(8-4), and Western Maryland 
(10-9 in eight innings). 

In what Smith calls the best 
game of the season, the squad 
beat Elizabethtown for the fir- 
st time in three years. Jeff 
Zimmerman's pitching and 
Gary Zimmerman's two triples 
highlighted that victory. 

Although the team will 
return nine lettermen, Smith 
hopes to recruit more players. 
"We are losing key people," 
he says, referring to senior in- 
fielder/pitcher Johnston, 
second baseman Vaughn Rob- 
bins, and catcher/outfielder 
John Feaster. Feaster will be 
nominated for All-MAC 
honors. MVP's for the season 
were Feaster and Jeff Zim- 

scoring came from Coleman 
(3), Pam Cortese (2), and Ab- 
bott (1). 

Western Maryland defeated 
the LVC women 11-5 in the 
pouring rain. McElwee again 
led with three goals and one 
assist, while Coleman had one 
and Jen Deardorff netted one. 

In an 18-10 loss to Get- 
tysburg, Coleman netted 6 
goals, McNamara added two, 
and Barefoot and Abbot 
rounded out the scoring with 
one each. 

The Dutchgals met Johns 
Hopkins at night on the turf, 
but lost in a disappointing 21-9 
trounce. Scoring came from 
McNamara (4), Barefoot (3), 
Coleman (1) and Abbott (1). 

In the last game of the 
season, the team lost to 
Widener 13-9, after trailing 
only 9-7 at the half. Coleman 
and McElwee led with three 
goals each, while Barefoot ad- 
ded two and McNamara con- 
tributed one. 

Tierney concluded by saying 
she wanted to compliment 
captain Sheila McElwee for 
her play, leadership, and 
"stick-to-it-tiveness." "She 
was willing to sacrifice her 
own performance for the good 
of the team," added Tierney, 
who also commended the 
seniors as a whole for their ef- 
forts this season. Seniors this 
season included McElwee, 
McNamara, Barefoot, Ab-

Empty Events Hinder Track 

by Tracy Wenger 

The men's track team lost to 
Messiah 95-52 with five empty 
events — a symbol of this 
year's men's track team. "All 
year we have lacked the depth 
because of the injuries of 
athletes like Bob Rogers and 
Doug Emanuel," says Coach 
Kent Reed. "The athletes we 
have are competing and suc- 
ceeding, but how can we win a 
meet with five empty events?" 
In spite of this need for team 
members, the track team still 
recorded a season with many 
personal highlights. 

At the Messiah meet, Kenny 
McKellar recorded noteworthy 
times of 11.1 and 22.46 secon- 
ds in the 100 and 200 yard 
dashes. Emanuel placed 
second in the long jump with a 
jump of 21*11". 

LVC (22) lost a disappoin- 
ting meet to F&M (69), 
Widener (45), and Juniata 
(47). Highlighting that meet 
was a long jump of 22' 1 14 " 
which took fourth place and 
was just short of a new LVC 

In a tri-meet, LVC (40) 
defeated Muhlenberg (37) and

lost to Albright (93). On April 
25, LVC (49) defeated 
Moravian (39) and York (20), 
but lost to Dickinson (74) in 
the quad competition. 

At the Messiah Invitational, 
the team finished sixth out of 
thirteen teams. McKellar again 
turned in fine performances in 
the 100 and 200 as he took two 
firsts. Bob Rosenberger placed 
second in the shot, while Hib- 
shman placed third in the 1500 
and fifth in the 800 yard runs. 
Emanuel took fourth place in 
the long jump and Kave Kur- 
jiaka took fifth place in the 
javelin. Jasman and Trumbull 
both placed sixth in the 10,000 
yard and 1500 yard runs 

At the Penn Relays, the 
1600 relay team of Gary 
Swank, Jim Reilly, McKellar, 
and Hibshman placed sixth. 

Reed notes the performance 
of freshman Kevin Schmidt in 
both the discus and javelin 
events during the season. He 
recorded a discus throw of 
133'3" against Dickinson and 
threw the javelin 178'2" in last 
Saturday's meet.

Men's Lax Win less 

The softball team, in its first 
year of intercollegiate play, 
ended its season with a 5-4 vic- 
tory over York College. The 
victory came when freshman 
Stephanie Smith stole home on 
a pass ball in the bottom of the 
seventh. The team ended the 
season with a record of 4-1 1 . 

"It was an enjoyable 
season, says Coach Gordon 
Foster. "The players worked 
hard and showed considerable 
skill and improvement." 

One highlight of the 
season was the strong defen- 
sive play of Beth Anderson, 
Penny Hamilton, and Smith. 
Hamilton's power hitting, and 
the two wins over Dickinson 
were boosters for the team's 

Foster notes the steady per- 
formances of Dicksie Boehler 
and Denise Mastovich on the 
mound. The two combined for 
six innings of a no-hitter 
against Lancaster.

in review follows.

The team will lose only three

Ralston, and Deb Wise. 
"Next year's season looks 
bngnt ana promising witn 12 
experienced freshmen and 
sophomores returning," adds 

The men's lacrosse team 
recorded what Coach Bruce 
Correll terms a "disappointing 
season" in spite of the "out- 
standing play" of Joe Por- 
telese and Mike Rusen's ten 
goals and nine assists. Injuries 
and inexperience, particularly 
on offense, coupled to hold 
the men winless.
